My client would prefer to remain anonymous…is that possible?

Certainly! The Bushnell respects all stated wishes for anonymity. Even so, we hope that your client will be willing to share with us the fact that they have created a gift for The Bushnell in their estate plans, so that we may say thanks and, with permission, invite them to our annual dinner, A Celebration of Giving, honoring not only Legacy Society members but other inspired donors as well. Additionally, we would be grateful, if your client is willing, to learn – confidentially – the details of the gift…to fully understand and be prepared to fulfill their wishes.

Can an estate gift to The Bushnell be restricted?

Yes, however, given that this gift will likely be received well into the future, The Bushnell prefers unrestricted gifts. If your client is interested in making a restriction on his/her estate gift, we encourage broad restrictions that will allow The Bushnell to fulfill the donor’s wishes in the future and ask that you contact us to discuss appropriate language.

Can an estate gift count toward a capital campaign?

Possibly. Whether the gift is revocable or irrevocable, as well as the donor’s age, will factor into the extent an estate gift may be counted in a capital campaign.
