Let Your Legacy Be Wisdom
Imagine a world in which each and every human on this planet could discover, study, and practice the words of the Buddha at the touch of a button.
Explore how you can make 84000 a part of your legacy and join our circle of generous supporters who give through their wills, trusts, or other types of planned gift to safeguard this invaluable heritage for the benefit of all future generations.
A Gift in Your Will
You want to leave money to 84000 in your will? You also want the flexibility to change your will in the event that life circumstances change? You can do both. It can be as simple as adding a sentence to your will.
Additionally, it may help to consider that there are no costs involved in your lifetime and depending on your location, there may be tax benefits in making a bequest to 84000. Leaving a lasting legacy doesn’t require great wealth.
We can guide you through the process with the following recommendations:
Talk with your loved ones. Let them know of your wish and share with them your intentions to include 84000 in your will.
Seek professional advice. Each country has its own considerations when it comes to estate planning. While it is highly advisable to consult a lawyer or financial advisor who can provide expert guidance in this regard, it is not mandatory to do so.
Write or update your Will. You’ll have to consider whether you want to leave a percentage or a specific amount of your estate to 84000. Then create or revise your Will. You may find sample language below.
Inform or start a conversation with us. While you are not obliged to inform us, we appreciate the foresight so that we can plan how to use your gift most effectively. If you’re interested in including 84000 in your Will, or have done so already, please complete this Planned Giving Pledge Form for our records. You may also email us at legacy@84000 with any question you may have.
The following language may be of help to you when drawing up a will that meets your needs.
Direct Gift: A gift of a specific dollar amount or fixed percentage that can be used where the need is greatest
“I hereby give, devise, and bequeath to 84000: Translating Words of the Buddha (insert dollar amount) OR (insert percentage amount) of my estate to be used for its unrestricted use and purpose.”
Residual Gift: Leaves any remainder after all other bequests have been paid
“I hereby give, devise, and bequeath to the 84000: Translating the Words of the Buddha, all or (insert percentage amount) percent of the residue of my estate to be used for its unrestricted use and purpose.”
Contingency Gift: Takes effect only if a primary intention can’t be met
“If any of the beneficiaries named in this will should pass away before becoming entitled to receive their distributive share of my estate, I direct my trustee to pay or transfer the share to which such beneficiary would otherwise be entitled, to 84000: Translating the Words of the Buddha for its unrestricted use and purpose.”
