A Gift in Your Will
Multiple options are available for including Plant With Purpose in your will.
- Special Bequest – Allows you to determine exactly what you want to leave to Plant With Purpose. This is a great tool for leaving a specific dollar amount or particular asset/piece of real estate that will benefit Plant With Purpose and the people we serve around the world.
- Residuary Bequest – Allows you to designate that Plant With Purpose receives all or a specific portion of the remainder of your estate once all specific bequests and obligations have been paid.
- Contingent Bequest – Allows a gift to Plant With Purpose to be fulfilled if certain conditions are met (e.g., if your primary beneficiary does not survive you, you can select a contingent beneficiary).
In addition to making a lasting difference in the lives of others, your bequest to Plant With Purpose may offer tax savings because it is deductible from your gross estate, providing your estate is large enough to require the filing of a state or federal estate tax return.

"As a family we have visited programs in the Dominican Republic and Tanzania and several of us have visited the Mexico, Thailand and Burundi programs as well. We can truly say that this program has changed the lives of our family and given us a focus of giving and service. We know that we will be life-long partners with Plant With Purpose.
And with that knowledge, we do not want this relationship to end. It was very important for us to include a gift to Plant With Purpose in our estate plan so our legacy of giving will continue after we are gone. It is exciting for us to know that we will be able to continue helping Plant With Purpose help others even when we cannot do it ourselves."
