Bequests Through Your Will

A bequest to the National CASA Association is one of the most effective and simplest ways to make a lasting impact on the lives of vulnerable children. You may specify a specific amount or a percentage you wish to give to National CASA. If you would like to make such a gift to the National CASA Association, you may include language similar to the following:

"I, [name], of [city, state, zip code], give, devise and bequeath to the National CASA Association, a Washington nonprofit public benefit corporation having its principal office at 100 W. Harrison, North Tower, Suite 500, Seattle, WA 98119, [written amount or percentage of the estate or description of property] to be used for the furtherance of its charitable purposes in the discretion and at the direction of its board of trustees for its unrestricted use and purpose."

If you are considering making a gift by bequest, please meet with your attorney to discuss the ramifications and, if appropriate, to update your will.

Giving Retirement Funds and Insurance Policies

If you would like to create a legacy for children but do not wish to write a will, you can name the National CASA Association as beneficiary of your retirement account or life insurance policy.

  • Retirement account: You can have a positive impact on children far into the future by naming National CASA as beneficiary or contingent beneficiary of an IRA, 401(k), 403(b) or other retirement account. Please consult with your financial planner or attorney regarding considerations when making this type of gift.
  • Insurance policies: Life insurance may be used to create a legacy by naming National CASA as beneficiary or contingent beneficiary of the policy. This requires that you complete a change of beneficiary form with your insurance company. You do not have to work with an attorney or an accountant to make this type of gift.
