Gifts in Your Will (Bequests)

All gifts of bequests are appreciated, whether they are large or small. You don’t have to own ecologically sensitive land to create a legacy – gifts such as cash, appreciated securities, and property all provide much needed resources to preserve and protect the islands. Your Will expresses your passion for those important things in your life.

  • You have the use of your assets during your lifetime
  • You can change your Will at any time
  • A bequest is a tax-effective way to leave a gift as it reduces your final estate taxes.
