Bequest Language

Giving Through Your Will or Trust
A bequest through your will or trust is one of the most convenient ways to donate to Midway's mission and vision. To create this gift, all you need to do is name the USS Midway Museum as a beneficiary of a percent, specific asset, contingent, or the residual (what is left over) from your estate.

     • Percentage gift: Name the USS Midway Museum as a percentage beneficiary in your will or trust. Sample language: "I hereby give, devise, and bequeath an amount equal to __% (_______ percent) of the total value of my estate to the USS Midway Museum                     (EIN 33-0556416), 910 N. Harbor Drive, San Diego, CA 92101."

     • Specific gift: Name the USS Midway Museum as beneficiary of a specific monetary amount from your estate or a specific asset or group of assets (such as securities, real or tangible property) from your estate. Sample language: "I hereby give, devise, and bequeath a monetary amount of $_______ to the USS Midway Museum (EIN 33-0556416), 910 N. Harbor Drive, San Diego, CA 92101."

     • Contingent gift: Name the USS Midway museum as a contingent beneficiary. Sample language: "If my brother John Doe survives me, I devise and bequeath __% (_______ percent) of the remainder and residue of property owned at my death, whether real or personal, and wherever located to John Doe.

Harbor Drive, San Diego, CA 92101."

     • Residuary gift: Name the USS Midway Museum a residuary beneficiary in your will or trust. The residuary of your estate is any property that is not specifically left to someone and that which remains in the estate after all estate costs have been deducted. Sample language: "I hereby give, devise, and bequeath the residuary of my estate to the USS Midway Museum    (EIN 33-0556416), 910 N. Harbor Drive, San Diego, CA 92101."
