A gift made through your will or trust, also called a “bequest,” is one of the most popular and flexible ways to make a significant gift to help TNIU further its mission.

What are the benefits of making a bequest?
1. You leave a lasting legacy to be remembered.
2. You lessen the burden of taxes on your family.
3. You may receive estate tax savings.

How do I make a bequest?
A bequest is one of the easiest gifts to make. With the help of an advisor, you can include language in your will or trust specifying a gift be made to family, friends or TNIU as part of your estate plan.

What are my options?

A bequest can be made in several ways:
You can gift a specific dollar amount or asset.
You can gift a percentage of your estate.
You can gift from the balance or residue of your estate.
You can make a beneficiary designation of certain assets.
Your bequest may be designated for a specific purpose, such as a scholarship or specific program. Conversely, gifts may be designated as unrestricted to help the university address needs that cannot be foreseen today.
