Leaving a Legacy

A legacy gift is a great way to make a meaningful contribution while continuing to use your resources during your lifetime.

ELIC can be named in a will or listed as a beneficiary to a life insurance policy, IRA, or other retirement fund. You can make a specific legacy gift, or leave a percentage, residual, or contingent legacy gift.

In order to make a legacy gift from your will or estate, you should speak with your attorney. Your attorney can help you include a legacy gift to ELIC in your will or estate plan. We have provided some basic legacy gift language to assist you and your attorney below.

Simple wording like this in a will or estate plan is sufficient or you can be more specific about how the funds will be used:

I give and bequeath to English Language Institute/China (ELIC) at 1629 Blue Spruce Drive, Fort Collins, CO 80524, Federal Tax ID #95-3551085, the sum of $____ (or a specific piece of property: pension, stocks, annuities, real estate, etc.) to be used as the board of directors directs.

Instructions for the executor of the will or estate:

Cash gifts can be given online at elic.org/donate or by mail to ELIC, 1629 Blue Spruce Drive, Fort Collins, CO 80524. Contact Brian Bumann at finance@elic.org to arrange a gift of property or stocks.
