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. And bequests are currently not subject to federal estate taxes, and may be able to help lower the taxable amount on your estate, which means more support may go to your ohana and legacy recipients.


Simple Set-up

The language below can help you define your legacy gift. A bequest is a favorite option for legacy donors because it is very flexible, and can be tailored to your specific wishes or conditions. Please consult your legal advisor for further guidance.
