Wording to Include IPF in Your Will

By including the Innocence Project of Florida in your Will, you leave a legacy that ensures the injustices from wrongful convictions continue to be corrected even after you’re gone, while still providing long-term financial security for your family and loved ones. Bequest gifts provide many benefits, including:

  • Simplicity. Just a few sentences in your will or trust are all that is needed.
  • Flexibility. Because you are not actually making a gift until after your lifetime, you can change your mind at any time.
  • Versatility. You can structure the bequest to leave a specific amount of money, make the gift contingent on certain events, or leave a percentage of your estate to us.
  • Tax Relief. If your estate is subject to estate tax, your gift is entitled to an estate tax charitable deduction for the gift’s full value.

Sample Wording

I give, devise and bequeath the sum of $_____ (or ____ % of my estate) to the Innocence Project of Florida, Inc., a Florida nonprofit corporation having EIN 20-0210812 and with the business address of 1100 East Park Avenue, Tallahassee, FL 32301, for its general purposes.

Restricted Bequests

Gifts for general purposes provide IPF with the most flexibility to ensure that the dollars are used effectively and efficiently. If you’d like to specify a special use or restriction, we ask you contact us at 850-561-6767 to ensure your wishes can be carried out.
