This gift shall be used for (state purpose) if and for so long as the Board of Directors of the Foundation determines that the need exists. If the Board of Directors of the Foundation shall determine at the outset or at a later time that the need does not exist, or no longer exists, or for some reason it is not possible (or prudent) for the bequest to be used as originally intended, the Board of Directors may, in its sole and uncontrolled discretion, direct the use of my bequest for a purpose related as closely as possible to that stated above.

It is strongly advised that the donor and/or the donor’s advisor discuss restrictions with a representative of the gift planning office before the will or trust is finalized to ensure the donor’s wishes can be carried out.
