Bequest / Will


The Legacy Society of Giving recognizes individuals who have provided for AccesSportAmerica in their estate plans. This is a popular and flexible way to make a legacy gift to AccessportAmerica. You can make a gift of a specific dollar amount, a particular asset, a percentage of your estate, or the remainder of your estate once all of your other bequests have been fulfilled.

Sample Bequest Language

1. Unrestricted Gift: A gift that can be used where need is greatest

I give, devise, and bequeath to AccesSportAmerica, Acton, MA, (insert dollar amount) Dollars* to be used for its general purposes.

Donate Legacy

2. Residuary Bequest: Leaves any remainder after all other bequests have been paid

I give, devise, and bequeath to the AccesSportAmerica, Acton, MA, (insert percentage amount) percent of the residue of my estate to be used for its general purposes.

3. Contingency Gift: Takes effect only if a primary intention cannot be met.

In the event that (insert name) predeceases me, I give, devise, and bequeath his/her bequest or share to the AccesSportAmerica, Acton, MA, to be used for its general purposes.

* Rather than leaving a certain sum, you can include language that refers to a percentage of your estate or a description of the property you wish to give.

Most donors leave their gifts to AccesSportAmerica without restriction. This allows AccesSport to use funds to help us fulfill our mission of providing high-challenge sports for children and adults living with physical and/or cognitive disabilities.

AccesSportAmerica honors a donor’s stated intent for the use of a gift. Donors who wish to designate the use of any gift, whether made during their life or through their estate, will have that wish honored. Bequest provisions designated for a specific program or activity require additional language. It is best to contact AccesSport in advance for assistance to ensure that your wishes are properly understood.

For more information please email or call us so that we may assist you through every step of the process.
