How a bequest works
A bequest is one of the easiest gifts to make. With the help of an attorney, you can include language in your will or trust specifying a gift to be made to family, friends or Concordia Life Plan Community as part of your estate plan, or you can make a bequest using a beneficiary designation form.
Here are some of the ways to leave a bequest to Concordia Life Plan Community

- Designate Concordia Life Plan Community as a full, partial or contingent beneficiary of your retirement account (IRA, 401(k), 403(b) or pension).
