Wills & Bequests

For a homeless kid without a family, there is no such thing as an inheritance... no nest egg passed from generation to generation. But through your legacy, our kids will know that someone remembered them... and did plan for their future by funding programs that will keep them off the streets for good.

Making a gift through your will is an excellent choice if you want to have a lasting impact on the lives of homeless kids long after you are gone but wish to maintain liquidity and use of your assets during your lifetime. And the full amount of your gift is deductible from your taxable estate.

A bequest can be unrestricted, enabling Covenant House to direct your funds where future need is greatest, or restricted to a particular program or Covenant House location.

The following language may be helpful:

 

Example of unrestricted bequest language:

I give (insert dollar amount, property to be given, percentage of the estate, or "the remainder of my estate") to Covenant House Georgia, a nonprofit corporation, Taxpayer Identification Number 13-3523561, headquartered at 1559 Johnson Road NW, Atlanta, GA 30318, for its general use and purposes.

Example of restricted bequest language:

I give (insert dollar amount, property to be given, percentage of the estate, or "the remainder of my estate") to Covenant House Georgia, a nonprofit corporation, Taxpayer Identification Number 13-3523561, headquartered at 1559 Johnson Road NW, Atlanta, GA 30318, and it is to be used specifically for [insert designated program or location].

If you include Covenant House Georgia and our kids in your will, please let us know so that we can thank you appropriately.
