When you make your estate plans, your primary concern is providing for your loved ones. At the same time, it is important that your plans also reflect your life and values. As you put together the documents that will establish your legacy, please consider including a gift to the New England Music Camp so that we can continue to provide extraordinary learning opportunities for young musicians for generations to come.
A gift to NEMC in your will or trust is easy to arrange. When you prepare your will, please include simple language to describe the gift you would like to make. Here are some options:
General gift for a certain dollar amount, for example, “the sum of $25,000.”
Specific asset - “1,000 shares of XYZ stock,” or “my real estate located at 1234 Main Street.”
Residual - a gift of the remainder of your estate after all other distributions and expenses have been paid. For example, “fifty percent of the rest of my estate.”
Contingent bequest - under certain conditions. For example, “in the event that my spouse does not survive me.”
Here is some suggested language you can provide to your attorney or advisor:
I give to the New England Music Camp, a Maine nonprofit (Tax ID #), or its successor, the sum of $___________________________, for any purpose the New England Music Camp deems appropriate.
I give to the New England Music Camp, a Maine nonprofit (Tax ID #), or its successor, (the real estate located at _____________________________ or 1,000 shares of XYZ stock), for any purpose as the New England Music Camp deems appropriate.
I give to the New England Music Camp, a Maine nonprofit (Tax ID #), or its successor, ___________% of the rest of my estate, for any purpose as the New England Music Camp deems appropriate.
If you already have a will or trust, review the documents to determine if any changes in your family or other circumstances warrant revising the document.
If you wish to add the New England Music Camp to your existing will or trust, contact your attorney and request a simple amendment as described above.
If you don’t have a will or trust, contact an attorney to have these documents prepared.
