If you are considering a bequest but would like to ensure that your bequest will be used only for a specific purpose, please let us know. We would be happy to work with you and your attorney to help you identify ways to give that will ensure your charitable objectives can be met. We will also work with you and your attorney to craft language to accomplish your objectives.
If you are making a restricted bequest, we recommend that your attorney include the following provision to give Open Door Mission flexibility should it no longer be possible for us to use your gift as you originally intended:
If, in the judgment of the Board of Directors of Open Door Mission, Inc., it shall become impossible for Open Door Mission, Inc. to use this bequest to accomplish the specific purposes of this bequest, Open Door Mission, Inc. may use the income and principal of this gift for such purpose or purposes as the Board determines is most closely related to the restricted purpose of my bequest.
