Did You Know?

St. Louis will give $93 million in charitable bequests during the next 51 years.
The most common type of planned gift is the bequest, or gift by will. An estate tax deduction is provided for the gift, but there are no income tax benefits. 

As you meet with your attorney to create or update your will consider benefiting Youth In Need by making one of the following types of bequests: General, Specific, Residuary or Contingent. By notifying the Development Office of your bequest you are automatically invited to become a member of Youth In Need's Legacy Society.

Sample language for such bequests are:
