About Bequests

An excellent way for you to support Daytona State College Foundation's (DSCF) mission is to leave us a bequest in your will, living trust or with a codicil. This allows you to leave a legacy for you/your family.

A bequest is generally a revocable gift, which means it can be changed or modified at any time. Bequests are exempt from federal estate taxes so if you have a taxable estate, the estate tax charitable deduction may offset or eliminate estate taxes, resulting in a larger inheritance for your heirs.

To make a bequest, we recommend that you speak with your attorney as he/she can help you include a bequest to DSCF in your estate plan. However, we have provided some basic bequest language below to assist you and your attorney.

Specific Bequest

A specific bequest involves making a gift of a specific dollar amount or a specific asset such as real estate or other property. For example, you may wish to leave your home or $10,000 to Daytona State College Foundation.

Suggested Language

I hereby give, devise, and bequeath (ITEM NAME) ($ DOLLARS) to Daytona State College Foundation (DSCF), a nonprofit organization located at 1200 W. International Speedway Blvd., Daytona Beach, FL 32114; Federal Tax ID #59-1581805, for DSCF general use and purpose.

Percentage Bequest

Another kind of specific bequest involves leaving a specific percentage of your overall estate to charity. For example, you may wish to leave 10% of your estate to Daytona State College Foundation.

Suggested Language

I hereby give, devise, and bequeath ____ percent (___%) of my total estate, determined as of the date of my death, to Daytona State College Foundation (DSCF), a nonprofit organization located at 1200 W. International Speedway Blvd., Daytona Beach, FL 32114; Federal Tax ID #59-1581805, for DSCF general use and purpose.

Residual Bequest

A residual bequest is made from the balance of an estate after the will or trust has given away each of the specific bequests. A common residual bequest involves leaving a percentage of the residue of the estate to charity. For example, you may wish to leave 30% of the residue of your estate to Daytona State College Foundation.

Suggested Language

I hereby give, devise, and bequeath to Daytona State College Foundation (DSCF), a nonprofit organization located at 1200 W. International Speedway Blvd., Daytona Beach, FL 32114; Federal Tax ID #59-1581805, (ALL OR A PERCENTAGE) of the rest, residue, and remainder of my estate to be used for DSCF general use and purpose.

Contingent Bequest

A contingent bequest is made to a charity only if the purpose of the primary bequest cannot be met. For example, you could leave a specific bequest from your estate to a relative, but the bequest language could provide that if the relative is not alive at the time of your death, the specific bequest will then go to Daytona State College Foundation.

Suggested Language

If (primary beneficiary) does not survive me, then I hereby give, devise, and bequeath to Daytona State College Foundation (DSCF), a nonprofit organization located at 1200 W. International Speedway Blvd., Daytona Beach, FL 32114; Federal Tax ID #59-1581805, (DESCRIPTION OF PROPERTY) (HIS/HER PORTION) to be used for DSCF general use and purpose.

Restricted Bequests

If you are considering a bequest but would like to ensure that your bequest will be used for a specific purpose, such as to contribute to an existing scholarship, to establish a new scholarship or endowment or to support a particular program, etc. language can be created to accomplish your goals.

If you choose to make a restricted bequest, we recommend that your attorney include the following provision to give Daytona State College Foundation (DSCF) flexibility should it no longer be possible for DSCF to use your gift as you originally intended:

If, in the judgment of the Board of Directors of Daytona State College Foundation (DSCF), it shall become impossible for DSCF to accomplish the specific purposes of this bequest, DSCF may use the gift for such purpose or purposes as the Board determines is most closely related to the restricted purpose of my bequest.
