Together we can continue to make a difference!
Did you know?
  • You don’t have to be wealthy to make a significant gift to PSR.
  • You can leave money to both your family and to organizations that reflect your values.
  • Making an estate plan doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive.
With thoughtful planning, you can use the assets you have right now to create a financial plan for yourself, provide for your loved ones, and make a generous gift to Pacific School of Religion. Below are examples of charitable bequest language you can use to add PSR to your will.
A Charitable Bequest by Will
A will distributes property at death, according to your intentions, while you retain control of your property throughout your lifetime. Since the will is a legal document, it should be drafted or amended (through codicil) by your attorney. The following example of bequest language could be used in designating a gift to Pacific School of Religion.
Residual Bequest
This is a gift of all the “rest, residue, and remainder” of your estate after all other bequests, debts, and taxes have been paid.
I, [name], of [city, state, ZIP], give, devise, and bequeath all of the residue of my estate, both real and personal, to Pacific School of Religion, 1798 Scenic Avenue, Berkeley, California 94709, for its unrestricted use and purpose (or other stated purpose, e.g. establishment of a named endowment, etc).
Specified Percentage
I, [name], of [city, state, ZIP], give, devise, and bequeath to Pacific School of Religion, 1798 Scenic Avenue, Berkeley, California 94709, an amount equal to ________ percent (_____%) of the value of my estate at the date of my death for its unrestricted use and purpose (or other stated purpose, e.g. establishment of a named endowment, etc).
Specified Dollar Amount
I, [name], of [city, state, ZIP], give, devise, and bequeath to Pacific School of Religion, 1798 Scenic Avenue, Berkeley, California 94709, the sum of ________ dollars ($_________)[or other specifically described personal or real property] from my estate at the date of my death for its unrestricted use and purpose (or other stated purpose, e.g. establishment of a named endowment, etc).
PSR has been UNAFRAID since its founding in 1866. With your support, we can continue this legacy of creating real and lasting change in the world. To set up PSR as your beneficiary email development@psr.edu or,  make a donation today!
