Gifts that can be made without giving money right now

Sample Bequest Language for a Will, Trust, or Beneficiary Designation

The foundation’s gift planning staff can work with you and your legal advisers to ensure your bequest accurately reflects your philanthropic goals. It is often useful to review your will every five to six years to be sure it is up to date to meet your current needs and circumstances. Making changes to your will can be easily done with a codicil to your will. 

You may design your bequest to benefit a specific campus, college or program area, or you may designate your gift as unrestricted to benefit the area of greatest need at the university.

In order to ensure your bequest reaches its intended target, you should direct your gift to the University of Nebraska Foundation, a Nebraska nonprofit corporation.

Please keep in mind the language below has been prepared by the University of Nebraska Foundation only as an example and should not be used as written without consultation with your own legal advisers.
