Sample Will Language

To leave a bequest in your will or estate plan to the Hoover Presidential Foundation, we suggest sharing the following language with your attorney:

“I give and bequeath $____________ dollars or _____________ percent/all of the residue of my estate to the Hoover Presidential Foundation, an Iowa charitable corporation, located in West Branch, Iowa, to be used for the Foundation’s general charitable purposes.”

Naming the Hoover Presidential Foundation as a beneficiary of your will qualifies you for membership in the Hoover Legacy Society. If you already have a bequest in your will for the Hoover Presidential Foundation, please inform us of your gift intentions by completing the Statement of Future Gift form so that we may welcome you! A form has been provided in the button list at the right side of this page.

We encourage you to share your plans with your family and to let the Hoover Presidential Foundation know of your intentions to ensure your legacy gift will be properly recognized or to let us know if you wish to remain anonymous.
