Bequests and Trusts

You can leave SHARE money in your will in several ways:

  • Specify a dollar amount.
  • Designate a percentage of your estate to be given through your will or living trust.
  • Give only what is left after all your bequests to loved ones have been made (the "residual").
  • Provide for a gift of stocks or other securities.
  • It is also possible to name SHARE as a contingent beneficiary of your estate in the eventuality that your named beneficiary is no longer alive at the time your will is probated.

Sample bequest language:

"I give and bequeath to SHARE: Self-help for Women with Breast or Ovarian Cancer, presently located at 165 West 46th Street, Suite 712, New York, NY 10036, the sum of $___, to be used for breast or ovarian cancer support."

We encourage you to consult with your legal and financial advisors when considering a planned gift.
