You can include UHF in your will or living trust with a designation of any amount, percentage, or specific asset, or by naming UHF a beneficiary of your retirement plan or life insurance policy. When discussing your estate plans with your lawyer or financial advisor, you may want to consider incorporating the following simple language in your will:
“I give and bequeath to United Hospital Fund of New York, federal tax identification number 13-1562656 the sum of $___ or __ percent of the rest, residue, and remainder of my estate, for its general purposes.”
If you have already named UHF in your planning, we hope you will let us know. It would be an honor to welcome you as a member of the Legacy Society and to thank you for your future gift. To inform UHF of your legacy gift, or for any additional questions, please contact Emily Regas, Director of Major Gifts, at 212-494-0743 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
