The most common planned gift is a bequest through your will or living trust. You can arrange a gift of a specific amount, a percentage, or even all or part of the residuum of your estate. If you would like to make such a gift to Texas Freedom Network, your attorney may wish to include language similar to the following:
“I hereby direct $___________ (or ____ percent of my residual estate) in cash, securities, or other property to the Texas Freedom Network to be used for its general purposes."
