A bequest is one of the easiest ways to make a planned gift to support Northwest Association for Blind Athletes' transformational programs for individuals who are visually impaired.
Including a gift to Northwest Association for Blind Athletes (NWABA) in your will or a trust is a generous and simple way to make a transformational impact.
Bequests can include a percentage of your estate, a specific asset, or a specific dollar amount. With a bequest, your estate will receive a charitable deduction for the full amount of a monetary bequest or the fair market value of the high-value donated assets.
