Wills / Bequests

By including PLTS as a beneficiary in your will, living trust or retirement plan, you can ensure that your support for future leaders of the church will continue in perpetuity. Not only do you help make our vision come true, you can shield a significant portion of your estate from estate taxes, and in some cases, receive an immediate tax deduction (please see your tax advisor).

To designate your gifts to support PLTS through your will, bequest, or other state plan, use official bequest language. For example: “I, (name), of (city, state, ZIP) give, devise and bequeath to PLTS, located at 2770 Marin Ave., Berkeley, CA 94708 (written amount or percentage of the estate or description of property) for its unrestricted use and purpose (or specific purpose).”

We hope you’ll tell us when you have named PLTS in your will. We would like to thank you for your generosity and to include you in our Remember the Future Society.

Remember to discuss all your charitable gifts plans with your financial and legal advisors. For more information, contact the PLTS Office of Seminary Relations at (510) 559-2735, (800) 235-7587, or .
