Interested in helping Second Baptist Church with its mission but feel overwhelmed by the thought of writing another check or giving up your assets today? A simple, flexible and versatile way to ensure we can continue our work for years to come is a gift in your will or living trust, known as a charitable bequest.
By including a bequest to Second Baptist Church in your will or living trust, you are ensuring that the church can continue its mission for years to come. Your gift also entitles your estate to an unlimited federal estate tax charitable deduction.
When making a gift in your will or trust, please use our suggested bequest language. "I, [name], of [city, state, ZIP], give, devise and bequeath to the Second Baptist Church in Houston, Texas, whose location on the date of the drafting of this will is 6400 Woodway, Houston, Texas 77057, [written amount or percentage of the estate or description of property] for its unrestricted use and purpose."
