USEFUL LANGUAGE FOR BEQUESTS

Background

Bequests are one of our important sources of support. Unrestricted bequests provide the greatest flexibility to use funds where they are most needed at the time of receipt.

Thank you for considering:

  • a stated dollar amount;
  • a percentage of your residual estate (what remains after gifts to loved ones and expenses have been paid); or
  • a specific asset, such as securities or other marketable property.

Please use the following information when naming Taylor in your estate plans:

Legal Name: Paul Taylor Dance Foundation, Inc.
Address: 551 Grand Street, Lbby A, New York, NY 10002
Federal Tax ID: 13-2665475

We encourage you to consult an estate attorney in the drafting of your bequest; however, this sample language may be useful:

“I give, devise, and bequeath to the Paul Taylor Dance Foundation, 551 Grand Street, Lbby A, New York, NY 10002 [the sum of _______ Dollars ($____)], [ _______ % of the rest, residue, and remainder of my estate], to be used for its general charitable purposes.”

We hope you’ll let us know when you have named us in your will or trust so that we can thank you and recognize you as a member of The Aureole Society.

To do so, please inform Jenna Jacobs, Director of Development, at jj@ptamd.org or 646-214-5815.
