You can make the most lasting gift of all by remembering Slide Ranch with a bequest in your Will or Trust.

Bequests allow you to leave a specific amount, a percentage of your estate, or specific assets such as stock, real estate or personal property in your will or trust. 

With a bequest,  

  • you retain control of your assets during your lifetime
  • you are free to modify your bequest if your circumstances change, and
  • you may direct your gift to a specific purpose or for general use. 

There is no upper limit on the estate tax deductions for charitable bequests. Your gift will benefit Slide Ranch tomorrow just as you intend it to today.

The most useful bequest is an unrestricted bequest for the general purposes of Slide Ranch.
