Wills and Bequests
The Federation for Children with Special Needs can be included in your will, either by naming a specific bequest or by naming the Federation as a remainder beneficiary after specific amounts have been allocated to other beneficiaries. By adding the Federation to your will through a codicil, you eliminate the need to redraft the will in its entirety. Bequests are an essential method of building the Federation’s endowment in perpetuity.
