Leaving a Legacy Through a Bequest: How to Include MALT In Your Will

 

Thank you for your interest in recognizing MALT through your will. Below are some options of language that you may include depending on how you want to structure the bequest. Once your MALT designation is complete, please notify us via the contact information listed below. This allows MALT to make sure your wishes are carried out and enable us to include you in our Legacy Giving Circle acknowledgement and events.

We strongly recommend that you always consult with an attorney when preparing legal documents.

A percentage of the estate:

"I give and bequeath to Marin Agricultural Land Trust (MALT), a California nonprofit organization located in Point Reyes Station, California, _________% of my estate."

A residual bequest:

"All the residue of my estate, including real and personal property, I give and bequeath to Marin Agricultural Land Trust (MALT), a California nonprofit organization located in Point Reyes Station, California."

A fixed amount of money or a designated property:

"I give and bequeath to Marin Agricultural Land Trust (MALT), a California nonprofit organization located in Point Reyes Station, California, $_________" (or describe the real or personal property, including exact location).

A double-purpose bequest:

You can provide a relative or friend with income for life through a special gift to MALT. You can do this by establishing a charitable remainder trust either during your lifetime or, through your will, on your death. The trust pays income to the person you designate. After that person's death, whatever remains in the trust passes to MALT.
