Including the B&O Railroad Museum in your will is a lasting way to honor your legacy.
A bequest (a gift made through a Will of assets or other property to a beneficiary) is a provision in your Will naming the B&O Railroad Museum as a beneficiary of all or a portion of the estate.
If you already have a Will, you can add a bequest with a codicil (a change to an existing Will). Here is a sample codicil to use for the B&O Railroad Museum.
There are several ways to include the B&O in your Will and the one you choose depends on family considerations, your charitable interests, and the assets that make up your estate and your goals. Bequests can be made using a variety of assets including cash, securities, real estate, or insurance policies. There is no limit on how much you can contribute through your Will. It’s always good to involve an attorney or professional that is experienced in estate planning when making any changes to your Will.
Please have your will or codicil drafted by an attorney who is familiar with the estate laws of the state where you live. The B&O Railroad Museum is not engaged in legal or tax advisory service.
