One of the most simple and popular methods of giving is in the form of a bequest. When making a will please consider including the TCWM. If you have an existing will, a simple codicil can be attached to include the TCWM. This type of donation is desirable for several reasons. It is a very simple process. There are several possible tax benefits outlined in the section 510(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. It provides for a personal legacy. For many, it allows them to make a donation that they were unable to do prior.

When preparing a bequest, please discuss it with your family and/or estate attorney. A person may be very specific as to their desires. They may leave their entire estate. They can leave a stated amount or they can leave percentage of their choosing.

The official legal bequest language for the Texas Civil War Museum is:

“I (name), of (city, state, zip), give, devise and bequeath to the Texas Civil War Museum, a Texas non-profit corporation located in Fort Worth, Texas (written amount, percentage of estate or description of property) for its unrestricted use and purpose.”
