To designate a gift for a specific purpose or project:
“I give to the Albany County Public Library Foundation (ACPLF), a non-profit organization currently located at 310 S. 8th St., Laramie, WY 82072, or its successor thereto, _________ [provide written amount of percentage of the estate or description of the property]. This gift should be used for _______ [state purpose/project] if and so long as the ACPL Foundation determines that the need exists. If the ACPL Foundation shall determine that the need does not exist, no longer exists, or for some reason it is not possible (or prudent) to administer my gift as originally intended, than the ACPL Foundation may, in its discretion, direct the use of my bequest for a purpose related as closely as possible to that stated above.”
