Bequests / Trusts

A bequest is a gift created now, in your will or living trust, and given at the end of your life.

Bequests are a way to show your support for the research and educational programs of the Vatican Observatory Foundation in support of the Vatican Observatory’s mission.

How might you word your bequest?

“I give [all of the residue of my estate OR an amount equal to X percent of the residue of my estate / thereof OR $                       ] to the Vatican Observatory Foundation, a nonprofit corporation in the state of Arizona, for its general educational and charitable purposes.”

  • If you would like to discuss bequests or trusts with the Vatican Observatory Foundation, please feel free to reach out to us.

    Thank you for considering supporting our mission!
