Making a Gift in Your Will to Bruyère

Thank you for considering leaving a gift in your Will to the Bruyère Foundation.
The following are some examples of wording that you may be used or added to your Will.

Sample wording

To make it simple, we’re providing you with the information you may need to add into your Will. Bring this along to an appointment with your lawyer:


Suggested wording for a residual gift:

“My Executor / Trustee shall transfer to the Bruyère Foundation all [or___%] of the rest, residue and remainder of my estate after paying all debts, taxes, expenses and specific bequests. I ask that this gift be used for the general purposes of the organization.”


Suggested wording for a specific gift (fixed sum):

“My Executor / Trustee shall transfer to the Bruyère Foundation the sum of $___ to be used for the general purposes of the organization.”
If you already have a Will, a simple amendment to your Will (or ‘codicil’) may be all that you need.
