Sample Codicil - American Battlefield Trust

Sample Codicil

When it’s time to update your will, you don’t have to start from scratch.

You can use a codicil, an addition or supplement that explains or modifies your existing will.

I give, devise, and bequeath $ ___________ to American Battlefield Trust, 1156 15th Street NW, Suite 900, Washington, D.C. 20005, for its charitable uses and purposes.

In all other respects I ratify and confirm all of the provision of my said last Will and Testament dated on the _________ day of ______________, 20__.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I sign, publish and declare this instrument to be a Codicil to my last Will and Testament in the presence of the persons witnessing said Codicil at my request this _____ day of ___________, 20__.

_________________________ residing at __________________________
(name)

Witnesses

_________________________ residing at __________________________
(name)
_________________________ residing at __________________________
(name)

The codicil, to be valid, must be signed in the presence of witnesses, and the original placed with your other valuable papers. A copy can go to your lawyer and a copy to American Battlefield Trust.
