Gifts through Your Will or Trust

Gifts by Bequest

Create a legacy that will have an impact on Fallingwater for years to come.

Your will or trust is a reflection of your values. A gift by bequest through your will or living trust will provide for your loved ones and create a legacy at Fallingwater for future generations. Bequests in a will or trust are one of the most common ways of making a legacy gift.

It’s simple to establish.
Include Fallingwater in your will by adding a codicil to your existing document or naming it as a beneficiary in a new will. You choose the bequest gift that works best for you, such as:

  • Specific Bequest: Designates a specific dollar amount/asset to Fallingwater.
  • Percentage Bequest: Designates the percentage of your estate to Fallingwater.
  • Residuary Bequest: After all necessary costs and bequests to others have been satisfied, any remainder of your estate will be distributed to Fallingwater.
  • Contingent Bequest: Assumes you want to leave your entire estate to family and friends. However, if you outlive any beneficiary, you can instruct that Fallingwater receive that portion of your estate.
