Leaving a Legacy - Making a Bequest

When you decide to leave assets to a nonprofit organization in your will you are making a bequest, and your estate may receive a charitable estate tax deduction.  

You can name Rhode Island Public Radio in your will as the direct beneficiary of a stated amount of money, a particular piece of property, or a stated percentage of your estate.
