Throughout the first 100 years of the League of Women Voters, bequests large and small have played a critical role in providing for the League’s immediate needs and inspiring Leagues to undertake new projects and challenges.
A gift to the League of Women Voters of Missouri Education Fund qualifies for a federal estate tax deduction and will support the League’s voter service and citizen education. A bequest can be an ideal way to honor a loved one or to support particular League activities in perpetuity.
Including the League in your will can be as simple as adding a codicil or amendment to your current will. The following is suggested language for your lawyer to use to draft a bequest to the LWVMO Education Fund.
“I bequeath to the League of Women Voters of Missouri Education Fund, a charitable trust formed in the State of Missouri, with offices at 8706 Manchester Road, Suite 104, St. Louis, MO 63144, (specify gift amount or property).”
You can specify that the gift is to support certain League activities. The gift will be transferred to the LWVMO account to be used for the appropriate purposes.
