You can add Special Olympics to your existing will or trust by revising and re-executing the document at any time, or by executing a separate amendment called a codicil. You have several flexible options you can discuss with your attorney:
- You can leave a percentage of your estate to charity: “I leave X% of my estate to Special Olympics.”
- You can leave a defined sum to Special Olympics: “I leave $XXX to Special Olympics.”
- You can leave a percentage of funds left over after other gifts and debts are paid and your loved ones are provided for: “I leave X% of the remainder of my estate to Special Olympics.”
- You can make a secondary or contingent gift that comes to Special Olympics only if your other beneficiaries do not survive you or other specific gifts cannot be fulfilled.
You can update your beneficiary designations on your retirement plan, life insurance, donor-advised fund succession plan, or other financial accounts to include Special Olympics as a primary or a secondary/contingent beneficiary by simply requesting a beneficiary designation form from your financial institution. In many cases, can you simply log on to your online account portal.
