MSK Bequest Language

Although legal consultation is advisable before you establish any type of will provision, know that a bequest could simply be stated as follows:

"I give and bequeath to the trustees of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, 1275 York Avenue, New York, New York 10065, federal tax identification number 13-1924236, ____% of my total estate passing under my Will (or $ ____, or other property)."

Please contact us to learn more about variations of how you may direct your support, such as designating your gift for a special purpose or program within the scope of the Center's mission. See additional sample wording.
