Wills and Trusts

A charitable bequest is one or two sentences in your will or living trust that leave to Feeding America a specific item, an amount of money, a gift contingent upon certain events or a percentage of your estate.

By including a bequest to West Suburban Community Pantry in your will or living trust, you are ensuring that we can continue our mission for years to come.

How to Fund Your Gift

You can use the following assets to fund a bequest:

A gift of cash is one of the most popular ways to support us after your lifetime. You may gift a specified sum of money or a percentage of your estate.

Appreciated Securities
A gift in your will or trust of securities often allows you to make larger gifts than you could during your lifetime.

Closely Held Stock
If you want to remain in control of your closely held stock during your lifetime, consider a gift in your will or living trust.
