Making a gift to KBI through your will or estate plan
Planning for the future and creating the legacy you wish to leave is one of the most effective ways to ensure a lasting impact with your philanthropy. Making a gift in your will or living trust, known as a bequest, can guarantee that your legacy and support of KBI’s mission endures.
Your gift may be a specific dollar amount, a percentage of your estate, or the remainder after all other provisions are specified. You do not need to disclose the amount or percentage of your bequest to us, but we appreciate knowing that we are included in your estate plan so that we can ensure that your gift is used according to your wishes. However, if you prefer to remain anonymous, we will keep your name and gift in strict confidence.

Sample Language for your Will
For an unrestricted gift that allows the Kino Border Initiative to determine how to use the funds based on the most pressing needs, use the following language for your will and/or trust:
“I give to the Kino Border Initiative, a nonprofit corporation currently located at PO Box 159, Nogales, AZ 85628, or its successor thereto, _________ [written amount or percentage of the estate or description of property] for its unrestricted charitable use and purpose.”
To designate your provision for a particular purpose:
“I give to the Kino Border Initiative, a nonprofit corporation currently located at PO Box 159, Nogales, AZ 85628, or its successor thereto, _________ [written amount or percentage of the estate or description of property]. This gift should be used for [state the purpose] if and so long as the Kino Border Initiative determines that the need exists. If the Kino Border Initiative shall determine at the outset or at a later time that the need does not exist, or no longer exists, or for some reason it is not possible (or prudent) to administer my gift as originally intended, then the Kino Border Initiative may, in its sole and uncontrolled discretion, direct the use of my bequest for a purpose related as closely as possible to that stated above.”
