Bequests, or gifts from estates, have positively impacted the International College of Dentists USA Section Foundation, Inc. over the years. Many of the existing transformational gifts that are central to our mission originated through the estates of our generous friends.

Understand the Ways to Give

You may make a bequest to the International College of Dentists USA Section Foundation, Inc. for a specific dollar amount or a percentage of your estate. You have the option to designate your bequest for general use by the USA Section Foundation or to restrict its use for a specific purpose (depending upon the size and scope of your gift).

Specific bequests are used to make a gift of a specific dollar amount or asset (securities, real estate, or personal property). Residuary bequests are used to give all or a portion of the remainder of your estate after payment of expenses and any other amounts designated to beneficiaries.

We encourage you to call the USA Section Foundation at (301) 251-8861 before writing a will that includes any type of restriction on a bequest or other deferred gift.

Summarized below are several examples of suggested wording for bequests to benefit the USA Section Foundation.
