planned giving

Be it an endowment (an investment tool that over time provides a steady income of interest-earned dollars earmarked for a specific purpose) or bequests (a gift made through a will), planned giving can ensure that the Kyrie Foundation has the means to continue funding research well into the future.

Endowment contributions may be made by direct monetary donations, directed memorials, stock or other marketable securities, gift annuities or bequests of any amount. You can include a bequest when preparing a new will or you can ask your attorney to attach a codicil to an existing will.

Often a bequest is very simple. Here are two common types:

• Specific Bequests allow the donor to transfer a specific amount or asset.

    I give {dollar amount or list of specific items} to the Kyrie Foundation presently located at {address}, for {any of its proper uses and purposes}.

• Residuary Bequests allow the donor to transfer all or a portion of the remainder of their estate, after the specific bequests have been made.

I give {all or a specific %} to the Kyrie Foundation presently located at {address}, for {any of its proper uses and purposes} or for {specified purpose}.

The preceding is not meant to be official legal or tax information. Please consult your legal and financial counsel before finalizing your plans.
