PLANNED GIVING

Legacy Society members  translate values into action.

Wills Create a legacy, with a bequest in your will. Your gift ensures the comedy/varieté at Moisture Festival continues for many years to come.

Moisture estival thanks Kevin Beder for establishing a legacy gift.  Read more about it here.

How to Establish a Bequest

Making a gift to Moisture Festival through your will or living trust offers great flexibility. You can give a variety of assets such as:

  • A specific piece of property,
  • A specific sum of money, or
  • A percentage or residue of your estate.

This is a way to make a lasting contribution to support Moisture Festival’s work without affecting your current financial security and freedom. A simple directive in your will or living trust, called a charitable bequest, can bring enduring support to Moisture Festival. Charitable bequests are straightforward to arrange, reduce your assets subject to taxation, and do not affect your current assets. There is no immediate out-of-pocket cost to you or disruption of your lifestyle. Legal advice is essential in drafting or changing your will. Since a will reflects your deepest wishes, it should be carefully constructed to accomplish exactly what you desire. This information is intended only to serve as a guideline for you and not as a substitute for professional legal counsel. You can take this information about Moisture Festival to your attorney:
