Charitable Bequests

Your charitable bequest is one of the most important types of gifts for building SFJAZZ’s future. When received, your bequest will be recorded as a gift to our endowment where it will strengthen the organization for future generations.

There are three types of bequests for you to consider: residual, specific, and/or contingent. Residual bequests, the most common, are often made after making specific bequests to relatives, friends and charities. Whatever remains after specific bequests (the residuary) can be given in percentage to charity and others.

When you place a specific or residual/percentage bequest in your will or living trust and notify SFJAZZ, we will invite you to become a member of the Legacy Circle. If you are considering a restriction we encourage dialogue now to ensure that your wishes are met.
