A Bequest in Your WillYour attorney can help you design an estate plan that protects your family, preserves your property, and benefits Colonial Williamsburg. You can bequeath a percentage of your estate to Colonial Williamsburg, a dollar amount, specific property such as antiques, or the remainder of your estate.
After signing a new will that names Colonial Williamsburg as a beneficiary, be sure to inform us so we can welcome you to the W. A. R. Goodwin Society.
