  • A gift through your will or trust is a more traditional method for leaving a bequest and should require your legal counsel to review any changes.
  • With proper planning, you can provide for the future financial security of your loved ones first. Then you can designate Operation Smile to receive:
    • The remainder. A gift leaves any funds remaining to Operation Smile after distributions to loved ones have been fulfilled. (see sample bequest language below)
    • A percentage. Direct a percentage of your estate to Operation Smile. This allows the gift to remain in proportion to the size of your estate.
    • A fixed amount. Give a specific dollar amount.
    • Specific property. Give property other than cash to Operation Smile.
You may decide to support Operation Smile through gifts from a life insurance policy or any amount remaining in a retirement account beyond what you would like your family or others to receive.
