Bequests in Wills

A bequest is a gift of assets or property to a beneficiary. It is the easiest gift to make with no or minimal out of picket expense to establish and is revocable if you change your will prior to your death. Because a charitable bequest can reduce estate taxes, it often results in long-term tax benefits.
