I (insert your name and full mailing address) hereby give Bridgercare, a nonprofit organization currently located at 1288 N 14th Ave #201, Bozeman, MT 59715 and assigned the tax identification number EIN of 81-0363189, the sum of $______ or _____percentage of my estate for unrestricted use and purpose.
