By designating Hawaii Literacy, Inc. in a will, trust, or beneficiary designation form, gifts such as a monetary donation, specific asset, or a percentage of your estate can be used to continue our efforts to tackle and solve the problem of illiteracy across the islands.
Bequests are revocable, so you can change them at any time. Bequests are also not subject to federal estate taxes, and can help to lower the taxable amount on your estate, which means that more will go to your family or other legacy recipients.
The language below can help you to define your legacy gift. A bequest is extremely flexible, and can be tailored to very specific wishes or conditions. Please consult your legal advisor for further guidance.
