There are many ways to be charitable through your estate. Some of the easiest ways are:

  • Name BGI as a beneficiary in your will. Sample bequest language for inclusion in your will can be found HERE.
  • Making BGI a beneficiary to your life insurance policy or IRA

With just a little planning you can make sure your loved ones and your community are supported far into the future.


For example:

  • At 30, you can name BGI as a beneficiary of your IRA
  • At 40, you can decide to include BGi as a beneficiary of your life insurance plan
  • At 50, consider naming BGI as a contingent beneficiary in your will
