Leave a Legacy
Your will or trust document provides a clear and specific understanding as to how you want to transfer your assets to the people you love - and those charitable organizations that you have supported during your lifetime.
As the ultimate charitable gift, you can make a bequest to NAMI Maryland in your will or living trust to ensure the strength and success of our education, advocacy, and public awareness programs for years to come.
A simple bequest or trust is neither limited to the very wealthy nor is it complicated to implement!
Your will is an important part of an effective estate plan. It directs - clearly and specifically - how you want to transfer your assets. Once you've determined that you would like to make a bequest to NAMI Maryland, the charitable bequest language that might be used in your will or revocable living trust might sound like:
- Unrestricted: "I give, and bequeath to NAMI Maryland, located at 10632 Little Patuxent Parkway, Suite 454, Columbia, MD 21044 the sum of $_______ or _________ percent or (real or personal property herin described) to be used for the general purpose of the organization, at the discretion of its Board of Directors."
- Restricted, to support a particular program or area of interest to you: "I give, devise, bequeath to NAMI Maryland, Inc. located at 10632 Little Patuxent Parkway, Suite 454, Columbia, MD 21044, the sum of $_______ or ______ percent or (real or personal property herein described), to be used for the purpose of _______________________."
Once you have named us in your will, please notify NAMI Maryland at 410-884-8691 or email firstname.lastname@example.org so we can provide you with special recognition as a member of the Chesapeake Circle. As a legacy supporter, you will receive invitations to exclusive NAMI Maryland events, as well as a free subscription to NAMI Maryland's quarterly print newsletter and other benefits.
