Small but Mighty
It's easier than you think to make a difference that will help future generations. One of the simplest and most effective ways to make a difference is by leaving us a percentage of your estate.
Including a gift of a percentage of your estate or a percentage of your residual estate ensures that your donation will remain proportionate to your estate size, no matter how it fluctuates over the years.
Making Your Gift
These are two popular ways to leave a percentage of your estate to The University of Texas at Austin:
- Include a gift in your will or living trust. By putting aside a percentage of the assets in your will or trust—from 1 to 100 percent—you can leave a legacy while making sure your family has the security they may need in the future.
- Name us as partial beneficiary of your retirement plan assets or life insurance. By dividing up your assets in percentages, you can benefit loved ones and us. To make this type of gift, simply contact the administrator of your retirement account or insurance company for a change-of-beneficiary form today.
A gift of any size from your estate can make a big difference at The University of Texas at Austin. Contact the Gift and Estate Planning Team at 512-475-9632 or firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more about these or other flexible options to extend your support.
