Making AMS a beneficiary or a partial beneficiary of an estate is easy and clear. A simple codicil, or addendum, is all a donor needs. AMS can provide wording and instructions for making such a change. A donor can add to a will in several ways:
- Leave an outright gift of money in your will
- Leave a percentage of your estate
- Make the residual beneficiary of your estate
- Leave a specific asset in your estate (a piece of real estate, interest in a business, stock account, a savings account, a bond fund, etc.)
Example: As John would like to leave a legacy, he adds a codicil to his will providing that 10% of his estate, after the specific bequests he makes to family and friends, goes to AMS. John knows that he has provided a long-term benefit to a cause important to him.
