Thank you for considering a bequest gift to Freedom for Youth Ministries through your will, trust, or through a beneficiary designation in your retirement plan or life insurance. Pre-arranging this sort of legacy gift continues your support beyond your lifetime and is another way to make a lasting impact reaching young people across Iowa. Below is the wording you would provide to your attorney or professional advisor:

"I, [Full Name], of [City, State, Zip], give, devise and bequeath the rest, residue and remainder of my estate, both real and personal, to Freedom for Youth in Des Moines, Iowa, tax ID# 03 - 0530851, [and/or amount or percentage of the estate or description of the property] for its unrestricted use and purpose."

Additional information regarding estate & legacy planning and resource materials can be found on the Leave a Legacy® Iowa website.

Ready To Get Involved

I volunteer at Freedom because I want every child to have the opportunity to hear about Jesus. I also want them to know there are adults that care about them and want to see them succeed. It is so rewarding to see them excited about being there and excited to learn!
