Remember Breakthrough in your Will

Interested in helping students realize their college dreams beyond your lifetime? Structure your will to provide for your family first; then include a gift to the charitable organizations you love. A simple sentence and meeting with an estate planning attorney are all it takes. The following is an example of wording that may be used to name Breakthrough as a beneficiary of your last will and testament. Your gift may be a specific dollar amount or a percentage of your estate. 


“I, [name], of [city, state, zip], give, devise and bequeath to Breakthrough, [federal tax ID #74-2991346], [written amount or percentage of estate] for its unrestricted use and purpose.”
