Please consider including the National Aviation Reporting Center on Anomalous
Phenomena, NARCAP, in your will or living trust. Called a charitable bequest, this type of
gift offers these main benefits:
Simplicity. Just a few sentences in your will or trust are all that is needed. Share the
sample bequest language for NARCAP.org with your estate planning attorney:
"I, [name], of [city, state, zip], give, devise and bequeath to NARCAP, National Aviation
Reporting Center on Anomalous Phenomena ($_______ or _______% of the estate or
description of property) for its unrestricted use and purpose"
Flexibility. Because you are not actually making a gift until after your lifetime, you can
change your mind at any time.
Versatility. You can structure the bequest to leave a specific item or amount of money,
make the gift contingent on certain events, or leave a percentage of your estate to us.
Tax Relief. If your estate is subject to estate tax, your gift is entitled to an estate tax
charitable deduction for the gift's full value.
How It Works
To make a charitable bequest, you need a current will or revocable living trust.
Your gift can be made as a percentage of your estate. Or you can make a specific
bequest by giving a certain amount of cash, securities or property. After your lifetime, the
Museum of Flight Foundation receives your gift.
Create a will or trust leaving part of your estate to family and part to NARCAP.
Putting Your Family First
When planning a future gift, it's sometimes difficult to determine what size donation will
make sense. Emergencies happen, and you need to make sure your family is financially
taken care of first. Including a bequest of a percentage of your estate ensures that your
gift will remain proportionate no matter how your estate's value fluctuates over the years.
