Gifts in Will or Trust
Making a gift to Pacific Science Center in your will or trust is easy to do. Your attorney can include the necessary language in your will, a codicil to your will, or your revocable living trust.
Here are suggested clauses to include in these documents that you should review with your attorney:
I give, devise and bequeath [identify here the specific sum of money, the specific asset or the portion of the residual estate] to Pacific Science Center, 200 Second Avenue N, Seattle, WA 98109 (Tax ID: 91-0750867) in such a manner as the Board of Directors of Pacific Science Center may direct.
I give, devise and bequeath [identify here the specific sum of money, the specific asset or the portion of the residual estate] to Pacific Science Center, 200 Second Avenue N, Seattle, WA 98109 (Tax ID: 91-0750867), specifically for [describe the primary purpose, but use general language so that the restriction is not so limited as to prevent Pacific Science Center from applying the money in the most efficient way.]
If it is determined by the Board of Directors of Pacific Science Center that all or part of the gift is no longer needed, or for any reason cannot be used for the stated purpose, then such portion of the gift may be used for other related purposes, which the Board of Directors deems to be in the best interests of Pacific Science Center, giving consideration to the original purposes described above.
