Question: Can I make a bequest that upon my demise, all my wealth should be given in charity? 

Answer: A bequest is only valid up to a third of the estate. If the bequest exceeds a third, it may only be implemented with consent of the heirs, if all are adults. The consent  will only be valid after the demise of the Deceased. 

ولا تجوز الوصية للوارث الا ان يجيزها الورثة ولا يجوز بما زاد على الثلث (القدوري ٨٥٢) 

And Allah Knows Best
