A gift in your will or trust is one of the easiest, most flexible, and most popular ways to create a world where all LGBTQ people live freely and fully. It takes just a few sentences in your will to set up a gift, and it can be changed easily at any time. This gift can include cash, securities, real estate, and other assets.


  • A general gift in your will leaves a gift of a stated sum of money in your will or living trust, typically in the form of personal property or assets.
  • A residual gift in your will leaves Horizons the remainder of your estate after other bequests, debts, and taxes have been fulfilled.
  • A specific gift in your will leaves Horizons a specific dollar amount or stated fraction of your estate or a specified item (collections, art, books, jewelry, and so on.)
  • A contingent gift in your will leaves Horizons a stated share of your estate only if a spouse, family member or other beneficiary does not survive you.
