A bequest costs nothing today, has meaning well beyond your lifetime, and has the power to secure Israel's future.
Making a bequest is as easy as deciding you want to participate and including the bequest language in your will that specifies AIPAC or its affiliated charitable organization.
How to Make Your Bequest
- First, decide how much you want to give. Designate either a dollar amount or a percentage of your estate or a combination of the two.
- Second, choose a beneficiary. The beneficiary may be AIPAC or AIPAC's affiliated charitable organization.
- Third, be sure to add specific bequest language to your will. Provide this to your lawyer.
Legally, until your will includes the necessary legal language, it remains just a good thought or intention.
