Bequest and Beneficiary Designation 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”).
Charitable Fund Types & Fees
Donors choose to work with the Saint Paul & Minnesota Foundation because they value the highest level of personal service as they identify and fulfill their charitable goals.

Fund fees include administrative and investment fees. The following are the fee ranges:
Administrative Fees: .35% to 1.5% depending on the type of fund and fund balance
Investment Fees: .01% to .088% depending on your client’s fund investment recommendation
