A charitable bequest is one of the easiest ways you can leave a lasting impact. A bequest may be made in your will or trust directing a gift to Identity Europa, Inc..

Leaving A Legacy Gift

A bequest is one of the easiest and best ways to leave a lasting legacy. With the help of an advisor, you can include language in your will or trust specifying a gift to be made to IDENTITY EUROPA, INC. as part of your estate plan.


A bequest may be made in several ways:

  • Gift of a percentage of your estate

  • Gift of a specific dollar amount or asset

  • Gift from the balance or residue of your estate

  • Making a Bequest of Your Retirement Assets



A retirement asset, such as an IRA account, makes an excellent bequest to us. If the IRA were given to your family, much of the value may be lost through estate and income taxes. By designating Identity Europa, Inc. as the beneficiary of all or part of your IRA (using a beneficiary designation form provided by your custodian), the full value of the gift is transferred tax-free at your death and your estate receives an estate tax charitable deduction.



An example of proper language for a bequest is as follows:

I give, devise and bequeath to Identity Europa, Inc., tax ID number 81-2000200, PO Box 1681 / Oakdale, CA 95361 [insert dollar amount, percentage of estate, or describe property] to be used for its educational purposes.

Identity Europa does not rent, sell, or publicize its contributor lists.
