Designating a portion of your estate to Hawai‘i Care Choices is a meaningful way to create a future legacy that will give on-going help to Hospice patients after your lifetime. A gift made by bequest through your will or revocable living trust allows you to use and control your assets during your lifetime.

Bequest

A bequest is a designation in your will or living trust that provides a gift to Hawai‘i Care Choices upon your passing. It can be set up during your initial estate planning or can be added to your current plans through a simple amendment. You can leave a specific sum of money, piece of property, or a percentage of your estate, or of the remainder of your estate.
