Name Lan Su in your will or living trust

Making a charitable bequest in your will or revocable trust is a wonderful legacy for you and Lan Su. There are several ways you can make a gift to Lan Su through your will or trust:

  • Unrestricted gifts: You can specify that Lan Su receive a percentage of your estate, a specific sum of money, or specific asset (such as stocks, bonds, or real or personal property). The most useful kind of bequest is unrestricted, allowing the funds to be allocated by Lan Su wherever the need is the greatest.
  • Restricted gifts: You can also designate that your gift be used for Lan Su’s general grants and operations, or you can restrict your gift to a specific program, event, or other purpose that is important to you.
