Planned Giving

Leave a legacy for physical therapy through IPTF. There are several options for including the Illinois Physical Therapy Foundation in your estate planning.

A general bequest states that a specific amount of money, a percentage of your estate or a certain piece of property, be given at the time of your death.  For most people, a gift of a percentage of the remaining estate after taxes and debts have been fulfilled is the most appropriate use of a general bequest.

The following sample language illustrates how a general bequest to IPTF might be phrased in your will or trust:

I give, devise, and bequeath      % of my Estate, after taxes and debts have been satisfied, to the Illinois Physical Therapy Foundation, an Illinois non-profit corporation, located in Naperville, Illinois.

I give, devise and bequeath that the amount $      be given to the Illinois Physical Therapy Foundation, a non-profit corporation, located in Naperville, Illinois.
