Gifts that Endure
You can choose to remain anonymous or be thanked in our publications and mailings. We can honor your wishes, as well, if you decide to donate materials to the archives anonymously. By remaining unnamed you protect your privacy. We do not, however, under any circumstances, allow our donor lists to be scanned, borrowed, duplicated or electronically manipulated in any way. If you choose to be named, it will be with your written consent, and only our publications will have your gift listed.
To make sure your exact intentions are carried out, wills (or codicils) or Living Trusts should be prepared with your attorney’s advice. A bequest to the Mazer Archives can be in the form cash, securities, real estate, personal papers (i.e. diaries, love letters, etc.) or other property. If you are considering a gift of appreciated real estate, please contact us for advice on how best to meet your charitable objectives.
You may find living trusts advantageous. This gives the donor access to property during his or her lifetime and carries with it great savings on inheritance costs.
- An outright or specific bequest designating the Mazer Archives as the recipient of a stated dollar amount or fraction of the estate. This bequest may be in the form of cash, securities, real estate, tangible or real property, personal papers, collectibles or any other type of property.
- A residuary bequest names the Mazer Archives to receive all or a specified part of the estate remaining after specific legacies or bequests have been distributed.
- A contingent bequest takes effect only in the event that all of the primary beneficiaries under the will are pre-deceased. The naming of the Mazer Archives can prevent the property from going to the state for lack of heirs.
- A testamentary trust of Living Trust, or a bequest reserving life income, is an arrangement where part or all of the estate is left in trust with the income or some stated amount is to be paid to the donor or to one or more beneficiaries. Upon the death of the donor or the surviving beneficiaries, the principal or assets will be paid to the Mazer Archives and used for the purposes you have designated.
