Example of a Charitable Bequest

When doing their estate planning recently, Mr. and Mrs. Carter determined they ultimately wanted to benefit not only their adult son and daughter, but also Overlake – where both children were born!  Working with their attorney, the Carters sign wills ensuring that when one of them dies, the survivor will be the sole beneficiary of the estate.  Later, however, upon the surviving spouse’s death, a bequest of $50,000 will be made to Overlake Medical Center Foundation, with the rest of his or her estate being split evenly between the two children.

The Carters are pleased with this arrangement because they know that if their circumstances change, they have the flexibility to revise their wills.

If you have a question or wish to get in touch with someone at Overlake regarding a possible planned gift, please contact Stephanie Stewart, Director of Planned Giving, by email or at 425-688-5452.
