What Will You Leave Behind?

Everyone leaves footprints. Our prints are made by the impression of our lives

on the sands of time. A person is remembered for the weight of his or her

character. For marks of accomplishment. For depth of faith. For beliefs. For shapes

of kindness. For length of compassion. For width of personal warmth.

For generosity. For values. When we leave positive impressions behind, we enhance the

lives of our friends and loved ones. We give them footprints to follow.

It can be as simple as including the Women’s Peacepower Foundation, Inc. as a beneficiary

of 1% of your estate through a bequest gift. This means you make a decision and plans

now for your estate that will one day provide a legacy for years to come.

 Leave a Legacy of Love

COMMENTS

  1. This publication has been reviewed by independent legal counsel. However, this sample wording for a Codicil should be used ONLY WITH ASSISTANCE OF AN ATTORNEY.
  2. By definition a Codicil is a Will according to the provisions of the Florida Revised code. Hence, the Codicil must be executed with the required formalities of the Florida Revised code.
  3. You may also make a bequest that gives income for life to a surviving spouse or other person. Fixed income payments will be made to the person you name for as long as that person lives. After this person's death, the principal remaining in the account goes to your congregation. To make this type of bequest, include the following wording in your Will or Codicil:

I give ______% of my net probate estate (or $ ______) to the Women's Peacepower Foundation of Dade City, Florida, to establish a Gift Annuity Agreement for (name Of Person) by which it agrees to pay him/her an annual annuity determined by multiplying the value of gift amount by the applicable annuity rate based upon his/her age at the date of gift. Upon the annuitant's death the obligation to make annuity payments shall terminate, in accordance with the provisions of the Gift Annuity Agreement, and thereupon the remainder shall be available for use by the Women's Peacepower Foundation of Zephyrhills, Florida, for the organization's endowment fund. If (name of designated income recipient) shall predecease me, the said bequest shall be distributed outright to the Women's Peacepower Foundation as indicated above.
