Charitable Bequests

Your intent to make a bequest to the Hollywood Theatre can be made clear in your will or living trust using simple and clear language, upon consultation with your attorney. You can stipulate a gift of a specific dollar amount, a percentage of the value of your estate, or property such as stock.

Sample Bequest Language:

“I give, devise and bequeath to the Hollywood Theatre, a non-profit organization (Tax ID #93-1074861) with a principal business address of 4035 NE Sandy Blvd, Suite 212, Portland, OR 97212, for its general purposes, all [or state the fraction or percentage] of the rest, residue, and remainder of my estate, both real and personal.”

Retirement Plans

IRAs, 401(k)s, 403(b)s, Keoghs, and other retirement plan assets make up an increasingly large part of many estates. When left to your heirs, these assets can be subject to income, estate, and other transfer taxes. Naming the Hollywood Theatre as a beneficiary of all or a percentage of your plan may reduce or eliminate these taxes.
