Remembering NHGSA in my will

Naming Granite State Ambassadors as a Beneficiary of Your Will or Trust.

A common and simple way of supporting Granite State Ambassadors is by making a provision in your will or trust.

Your will designates your beneficiaries and spells out your final wishes. The beneficiaries would include your heirs, of course, but many people include provisions for charitable organizations as well. It is our hope that you will consider including Granite State Ambassadors in your plans.

The following suggested forms of bequests are examples that can be adapted by you and your attorney to meet your specific intentions.

Specific Bequest
A specific bequest names a particular dollar amount to be left to Granite State Ambassadors.

“I give and bequeath to Granite State Ambassadors, a New Hampshire non-profit corporation, Tax ID number 02-0505492, with offices at 470 Mast Road, Goffstown NH 03045, the sum of $______ to be used for the general purposes of the organization (or  to be used for the specific purpose of building the Granite State Ambassador endowment).”

Residuary Bequest
A residuary bequest first leaves specific amounts to family members, friends, or other charities, and then designates that all or part of what remains should go to Granite State Ambassadors.

“I give and bequeath to Granite State Ambassadors, a New Hampshire non-profit corporation, Tax ID number 02-0505492, with offices at 470 Mast Road, Goffstown NH 03045, all (or stated percentage of) the rest residue and remainder of my estate to be used for general purposes of the organization (or to be used for the specific purpose of building the Granite State Ambassador endowment).”

Contingent Bequest
