A charitable bequest is the simplest and most common form of providing an ultimate gift for a charitable cause. A bequest is a provision in one's last will and testament where a gift or property is transferred from an estate to a charitable organization, such as Goodwill. Making a bequest can be as simple as inserting a few sentences into a new will, or can be added as a simple amendment (called a 'codicil') to an existing will.
