Your Will

Including 92nd Street Y in Your Will

A bequest is a simple, straightforward means to create a legacy that enables 92nd Street Y to continue to bring programs of the highest caliber to its community. Bequests to 92Y can be made in several forms. A bequest can be easily established by having your attorney write a simple and inexpensive codicil to your existing will.

Here is an example of how to word a bequest to 92Y:

"I give and bequeath (the sum of _______________ Dollars) or (_______ percent of the rest, residue and remainder of my estate) to 92nd Street Y to be used by 92Y for its general purposes."

An unrestricted bequest enables 92nd Street Y to direct your gift to where it will have the greatest impact. But if you wish to fund a specific area or interest, a restricted bequest is also possible.

A bequest is a precious gift—one that will help ensure that 92nd Street Y will continue to entertain, educate and enrich the lives of our children and our community.

For more information about language your can use when planning your will, please call 212.415.5678 / email.

Planned gifts like bequests entitle donors to membership in 92nd Street Y Partners, a group of generous individuals who have chosen to remember the institution in their estate plans.
