Wills and Living Trusts

The Easiest Way to Make an Impact

A Gift in Your Will or Living Trust

Interested in helping Dental Lifeline Network with our mission but feel overwhelmed by the thought of writing another check or giving up your assets today? A simple, flexible and versatile way to ensure we can continue our work for years to come is a gift in your will or living trust, known as a charitable bequest.

By including a bequest to Dental Lifeline in your will or living trust, you are ensuring that we can continue our mission for years to come. Your gift also entitles your estate to an unlimited federal estate tax charitable deduction.

Robert and Carol treasure the financial help they’ve been able to give their children and Dental Lifeline over the years. Now that their kids are grown, Robert and Carol changed their estate plan so it could work harder for the people and causes they love. The couple updated their will to leave stocks and real estate to their kids. And they left us a $75,000 IRA to be transferred after their death. Because Dental Lifeline is tax-exempt, all $75,000 will help support our mission.

If Robert and Carol had left the IRA to their children, approximately $21,000* would have gone to pay federal income taxes—leaving only $54,000 for their family’s use. Robert and Carol are happy knowing they are making the most of their hard-earned money thanks to their updated estate plan.
