The following is sample language for an Unrestricted Expendable Bequest to the Historic Preservation Alliance of Colorado Springs:

I give ______________ to the Historic Preservation Alliance of Colorado Springs, a Colorado 501(c)3 nonprofit organization (Federal EIN number 84-1582319), located in Colorado Springs, Colorado, or its successor thereto, for any reason or purpose whatsoever, as determined by said nonprofit organization.

If unforeseen circumstances arise in the future making the purpose for which this gift was envisioned illegal, impracticable or impossible to fulfill, the Historic Preservation Alliance of Colorado Springs’ Board of Directors shall determine an alternate distribution which shall be as nearly aligned with the original intent of my gift as good conscience and need dictate. In the further event that the Historic Preservation Alliance of Colorado Springs ceases to exist, the gift shall be transferred to another charitable entity or organization whose mission is consistent with my original intentions for the gift established herein, as described above.
