As a nonprofit organization, Okizu is eligible to accept bequests. As you plan your legacy, please consider Okizu and the families we serve. Over the years many individuals have provided generously for Okizu in their wills. A bequest can be a specific monetary amount, a percentage of your trust or estate, or a specific piece of property. You may also be able to achieve some current income tax benefits through various planned giving techniques. Please work with your attorney or estate advisors.

The following is sample bequest language:

“I hereby give to Okizu, Federal Tax I.D. number 68-0291178, located at 16 Digital Drive, Suite 130, Novato, CA 94949 the sum of $___ or ____% of my estate or property herein described, for the benefit of Okizu Foundation, to be used by its Board of Directors as it may deem advisable.”
