Bequests

By including San Francisco Zen Center in your will, you can ensure that your generosity will continue in perpetuity. Zen Center promises to put your gift to the best possible use, in fulfilling our mission to make accessible and embody the wisdom and compassion of the Buddha, as determined by Zen Center’s spiritual leadership and our Board of Directors.

There are several ways to make contributions through your will. You can:

Give A Percentage
“I give, devise, and bequeath to San Francisco Zen Center of San Francisco, California, ______% of my estate to be used for charitable purposes.”

Give A Specific Dollar Amount
“I give, devise, and bequeath to San Francisco Zen Center of San Francisco, California, $_______ to be used for charitable purposes.”

Give A Residue

A residue is what assets remain after other bequests have been granted.
“All the residue of my estate, including real and personal property, I give, devise, and bequeath to San Francisco Zen Center of San Francisco, California, to be used for its charitable purposes.”
