Please contact your attorney to include a bequest to the Jewish Federation of Howard County.  Here is some sample language for you and your attorney to use:

If you are making a restricted bequest, please contact us to ensure your gift can be used as intended. We also recommend that your attorney include the following provision to give the Jewish Federation of Howard County flexibility should it no longer be possible for our organization to use the bequest as you originally intended.
