Estate Gifts

Estate Gifts


Bequests are a convenient way to leave a lasting legacy to Agnes Scott.  After providing for your loved ones, making a bequest to Agnes Scott ensures that your remaining property is put to good use when you no longer need it.

In making a provision for Agnes Scott College in your will or revocable living trust, you are creating a bequest.  The bequest may be for a specific dollar amount or a percentage of your estate.

You may also name Agnes Scott College as a residual beneficiary, which means the college's gift is not made until all specific bequests, expenses, debts and taxes have been paid.

If you make provision for Agnes Scott in your will or revocable living trust, you may indicate how you wish the college to use your gift.  You may, for example, restrict the bequest for endowment, in support of scholarships or faculty development or an academic program.  You may also make the bequest unrestricted, making funds available where the college needs them most.

A bequest gift may be included in your original will or added by a simple codicil at a later time.
