A bequest can be to a person, or it can be a charitable bequest to a nonprofit organization like QAS Legacy Scheme, trust, or foundation.
Legacy giving, sometimes generally referred to as ‘planned giving,’ is a donation made by an individual through a will or other formal designation. Legacy gifts are typically prepared with a financial planner and are meant to reflect the values and desires of the donor.
Bequests to QAS Legacy Scheme all go to supporting the families of those in need. Bequests can be simple or complex and some might have conditions about how the gifts are to be used or can be designated to a particular fundraising event, or a particular family.
