Support Us > Wills & Bequests

What do you want your will to accomplish? Security for a surviving spouse? A comfortable future for your children? Financial support for Christ's work here at home and around the world?

Please remember Russian Missions in your will. It would be a special way of thanking God for His blessings and sharing them with others-even after you are gone.
Knowing your intentions will be carried out is reason enough to have a will, but several other important goals can also be accomplished with a carefully drafted will.

There are various types of bequests (descriptive provisions) you may choose in your will.

A general bequest is used to give a stated sum of money to any beneficiary, either in a lump sum or in installments.

A specific bequest is used to make a specific gift of property to a beneficiary. For example, "I bequeath my plate collection to my daughter, Terry."

A residual bequest is used to give all of the remainder of your property (the residue) to a beneficiary after all debts, expenses, and taxes have been paid and all general and specific bequests have been satisfied.

The outright charitable bequest is a popular method of making a gift-large or small. Outright charitable bequests may be cash or any type of property, including stocks, bonds, or real estate property.

The percentage bequest may also take the form of a percentage of the estate. It protects your intended beneficiaries against possible shrinkage of the estate's value.

When drafting your will or adding a codicil to your existing will, you and your attorney may find the following sample wording helpful:

"I give, devise, and bequeath ____ percent (_%) of my residuary estates (or the sum of _____ dollars ($____) to the Russian Missions, who have offices in Churchville, PA. This bequest shall be used to fund the total ministry of Russian Missions."
