A beneficiary is a person or organization that will receive the benefit of property from an estate or trust. This may be through the right to receive a bequest or to receive trust principal over time.

Please note that the American Battlefield Trust is the umbrella organization over the divisions of the Civil War Trust and the Revolutionary War Trust. If you want your gift restricted to preserve land associated with a certain war, please indicate that on our Declaration of Intent form after making the American Battlefield Trust a beneficiary.
