How do I make a bequest?

A bequest is one of the easiest gifts to make. With the help of an advisor, you can include language in your will or trust specifying a gift be made to family, friends or OSF Healthcare Foundation as part of your estate plan.

A bequest can be made in several ways:

  • You can gift a specific dollar amount or asset
  • You can gift a percentage of your estate
  • You can gift from the balance or residue of your estate

You can also make a beneficiary designation of certain assets

Naming OSF Healthcare Foundation to support any area of the OSF Ministry as a beneficiary on your life insurance policy or retirement asset such as an IRA, is an easy way to create a legacy gift without the expense of changing your will.
