    Bequests

    Bequests

    Joe and Anna have been faithful supporters of Mount Hermon. They believe it is important to support and encourage the ministry at Mount Hermon.

    Joe: Several years ago, Anna and I decided to become part of the organization's mission. We believe that they are truly helping others. We think that it is important to partner with them to make a difference. For that reason, Anna and I have made gifts over the years to help others.

    Anna: We wanted to do more than to just make gifts. Joe and I have been careful over the years and have accumulated some resources. We plan to be generous with family, but we also have the ability to be generous with charity.

    After talking it over, we decided to leave a bequest in our will. Our attorney took the simple language available from Mount Hermon and included a nice bequest. We are delighted that we will be impacting lives through Mount Hermon.

    You also may want to make it easy and convenient to have a bequest included in your will. The language below shows how a bequest can very easily be included in your will.
