The UA Foundation will work with you and your attorney to create your legacy at The University of Akron. If you have included the UA Foundation in your estate plans, please let us know. We want to thank you for your generosity.
A bequest is an easy gift to make. With the help of an advisor, you can include a bequest to The University of Akron Foundation in your will or trust. Your gift can be unrestricted, or designated to a specific cause, such as a previously established endowment or particular unit on campus.
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 contingent gift, triggered if the primary beneficiary is unable to accept.
To ensure there is no question as to what your gift is intended to support once it is ultimately received, we recommend including the following language in your estate plans: The University of Akron Foundation, Akron, Ohio 44325-2603 (Federal Tax ID: 34-6575496), in support of _______________________.
To ensure your bequest can be carried out as intended, please notify us of your gift by completing this non-binding Bequest Statement of Intent.
