Thinking about what is to happen to your possessions and capital after your death may not always be a cheerful activity, but it is a sensible thing to do. By including a charity as a beneficiary in your will, you will be able to donate (a part of) your estate tax-free, so that, also after your death, you can contribute to a better world or ensure that work on one of your ideals continues. This is why growing numbers of people are opting to include the Limburg University Fund/SWOL in their wills.
A bequest to a charity is only possible through a will drawn up by a civil-law notary. A handwritten disposition is not sufficient. There are two ways to leave a bequest:
Appointment of a beneficiary
You can name the Limburg University Fund/SWOL as your beneficiary/co-beneficiary in your will, in what is referred to as an appointment of a beneficiary. The Limburg University Fund/SWOL will receive a percentage of your estate. You determine what that percentage will be.
If you do not want to make Limburg University Fund/SWOL your beneficiary, but you would nevertheless like to include it in your will, you can create a legacy. With a legacy, you determine the monetary amount that you wish to leave to the Limburg University Fund/SWOL.
