6. Create a Legacy
Consider naming Syzygy Dance Project in your will or estate plan. You don’t need to have a large estate to leave a legacy gift. Large or small, legacy gifts can benefit your family and the non-profit beneficiaries you name.
Adding Syzygy Dance Project as a beneficiary in your will (called a “bequest”) is easy to arrange. The bequest remains in your control: you can structure the bequest to leave a specific item/amount, leave a percentage of your estate to Syzygy Dance Project, or even make the gift contingent on certain events. The process does not need to be complicated—at the very simplest, a signed piece of paper naming Syzygy Dance Project as beneficiary of a percentage of your estate. Find full details on the process here.
Here is some language that you may include depending on how you want to structure the bequest. Once your Syzygy Dance Project designation is complete, don’t forget to notify us!
