A legacy gift is most often a bequest - a simple naming of St. Jerome Parish in a parishioner's will of any amount. Bequests can represent a share or all of the residue of an estate after family members benefit but it can also include an outright naming of a specific amount or a percentage of estate funds. Other common estate gifts are charitable gift annuities, insurance policy beneficiaries and trusts.
