Gifts by Will or Revocable "Living" Trust

The most common form of deferred gift to support Marywood is a bequest contained in a person's will or revocable (living) trust. The following language is an example of how a bequest to benefit Marywood may be worded:

I give, devise, and bequeath to Marywood University, $___ (or ___% of my estate) to be used at the discretion of the Board of Trustees.

All the residue of my estate, including real and personal property, I give, devise and bequeath to Marywood University to establish ___ (i.e. John and Jane) endowed scholarship.

If you make annual gifts to Marywood University and would like to continue your support after your lifetime, you can arrange an endowed gift through your will. Giving in this way ensures that your gift continues into perpetuity.

If you are planning to make us one of your beneficiaries, we encourage you to tell us now. That way, we can help you obtain the greatest possible satisfaction from your gift.
