Bequests for Will or Trust
No other planned gift is as simple to implement and as easy to change. You maintain the use, benefit, enjoyment, and control of your assets for as long as you need them, for as long as you live.
You can include a bequest provision in your will or living trust that specifies an amount or percentage of your estate that you wish Partnership With Native Americans or the PWNA program or programs of your choice to receive.
Here is some sample bequest language that you might use in your will or living trust:
*Note: It may be possible to specify where you would like your bequest to go. Please contact Suzi Smith in our Planned Giving Department at (877) 853-6474. You are also encouraged to consult with your legal and financial advisors when considering a planned gift.
LAST IN LINE
Being last in line is nothing new for Native Americans whether waiting in line for government goods and commodities or inadequate health services.
Impoverished Native Americans have endured these shameful conditions with dignity and quiet resolution.
But being the “last in line” to be included in a benefactor’s Will is an honor and a privilege for PWNA. We understand donors wish to take care of others first before including a nonprofit in their Will. Any amount left to Pwna or a PWNA program will benefit the Indian communities we serve.
It is not necessary for a benefactor to inform us of their intentions to include PWNA in their Will but it is very helpful for us to know.
We know that circumstances may change over the years and you may need to revise your Will accordingly. A Will is not “set in stone” but it is a testament to one’s support and belief in the services we are providing Native American communities.
