Sample Language for Your Will or Trust

If you have decided to leave a gift in your will or trust for ADL, we suggest the following language.

For a residual bequest that comes to us after your estate expenses and specific bequests are disbursed:

I give ___________ percent (______%) of the residue of my estate to the Anti-Defamation League Foundation, a not-for-profit corporation, having its principal offices at 605 Third Avenue, New York, NY 10158-3560, Tax ID number 13-2887439, to be used for its general purposes (or for the support of a specific regional office, fund or program).

Or for a gift of a specific sum of money:

I give the sum of ______________ dollars ($__________) to the Anti-Defamation League Foundation, a not-for-profit corporation, having its principal offices at 605 Third Avenue, New York, NY 10158-3560, Tax ID number 13-2887439, to be used for its general purposes (or for the support of a specific regional office, fund or program).

Please Note: If you are interested in supporting a specific project or program, it is best to discuss your plans with our planned giving professionals before completing your bequest language to confirm your wishes can be met by ADL.

The policies of ADL do not allow ADL or its representatives to serve as personal representative, executor, trustee or witness for a will or trust.
