Specific Bequest


A Specific Bequest is a gift of a particular dollar amount or a particular piece of property. For example:

"I bequeath [dollar amount or description of property] to The New York Public Library, Astor, Lenox and Tilden Foundations."

Should you wish to make a bequest for a specific purpose (i.e., other than for the Library's general purposes), please contact the Planned Giving Staff.
