How a gift from your will works

A gift from your will is one of the easiest gifts to make. With the help of an attorney, you can include language in your will or trust specifying a gift to be made to family, friends or University of Cincinnati Foundation as part of your estate plan, or you can make a gift from your will using a beneficiary designation form.

Here are some of the ways to leave a gift from your will to University of Cincinnati Foundation

  • Include a gift from your will to University of Cincinnati Foundation in your will or revocable trust
  • Designate University of Cincinnati Foundation as a full, partial or contingent beneficiary of your retirement account (IRA, 401(k), 403(b) or pension)
  • Name University of Cincinnati Foundation as a beneficiary of your life insurance policy

A gift from your will may be made in several ways

  • Percentage - make a gift of a percentage of your estate
  • Specific - make a gift of a specific dollar amount or a specific asset
  • Residual - make a gift from the balance or residue of your estate
