Bequest Language

Printable Bequest Language

To leave a bequest to the JFK Library Foundation, we suggest sharing the following language with your attorney:

“I hereby give and bequeath [____________ dollars/_____________ percent/all of the residue of my estate] to the John Fitzgerald Kennedy Library Foundation, Incorporated, a Massachusetts charitable corporation located in Boston, Massachusetts, to be used for the Foundation’s general charitable purposes.”

Naming the JFK Library Foundation as a beneficiary of your will qualifies you for membership in the Victura Society. Please inform the JFK Library Foundation of your gift intentions so that we may welcome you! We encourage you to share your plans with your family and to let the JFK Library Foundation know of your intentions to ensure your legacy gift will be properly recognized or to let us know if you wish to remain anonymous.
