Tools & Resources

Declaration of Intent for a Planned Gift

A declaration of intent is a simple way to indicate your client’s plan to leave a gift to the community. By informing us of this intent, your client will become a member of the Foundation’s North Star Society and receive special opportunities and recognition.

Sample Testamentary Language

Here is some sample language to include a gift in your client’s will. Please also contact a gift planner to establish a fund agreement with us and discuss your client’s specific situation. A fund agreement must be in place in addition to using this language to ensure that your client’s wishes are fulfilled.

I devise and bequeath $_______ or ___ percent of my gross estate as determined for federal estate tax purposes to the Saint Paul & Minnesota Foundation, Incorporated (EIN: 41-6031510), to be held by it as a separate fund to be known as the _______________________ Fund (the “Fund”).

With our planned giving software, we can run illustrations on how different giving vehicles may have income and tax benefits for your clients. Contact us for an illustration on a charitable remainder trust or gift annuity.
