The C&O Canal Trust's Beall-Gude Society
Take time today to plan for tomorrow and join the Trust's Society for friends who have included a gift in their estate plans for the Trust's conservation and education efforts.
Society benefits include:
As you prepare your estate plans, you will help secure the future of the C&O Canal when you name the Trust to receive:
- A specific dollar amount,
- A percentage of your estate's value,
- All or part of the remainder of your estate in your will or trust, or
- All or part of the proceeds of a Life Insurance policy or Retirement Plan.
We urge you to consult your attorney in preparing your will and hope that the following language will be helpful in providing a bequest to the Trust:
" After fulfilling all other provisions for my heirs, I give, devise and bequeath ___% of what remains of my estate (or $_______) to the C&O Canal Trust, Inc. (Tax ID # 30-0401642), a charitable corporation presently having offices at 1850 Dual Highway, Suite 100, Hagerstown, Maryland 21740."
Your advisor may wish to know that the Trust is a non-profit 501(c)3 corporation organized and existing under the laws of the State of Maryland and its federal tax ID number is 30-0401642.
When you include the Trust in your estate plans, you are invited to join the Beall-Gude Society. This recognition society gives us the opportunity to acknowledge your support and express our appreciation for your gift to the Trust.
