Gift and Bequest
A gift and bequest is a combination of a current gift and a charitable gift made in your will or trust. It is an easy way to support our cause today and make a lasting future impact on York University.
Benefits of a gift and bequest
- Receive a charitable income tax deduction for your gift made to us this year
- Continue to use and control your assets during your lifetime
- Leave a lasting legacy through a bequest to support our work after you are gone
How a gift and bequest works
You can make a gift to support our work this year by contacting us or visiting our website. A charitable bequest is a way to make your giving go further. With the help of an attorney, you can include language in your will or trust specifying a gift to be made to York University as part of your estate plan, or you can make a bequest by designating us as a beneficiary of your retirement account or life insurance policy.
If you have any questions about making a gift and bequest to York University, please contact us. We would be happy to assist you. If you have been so generous as to include a bequest to York University as part of your estate plan, please take the time to let us know. We would like to recognize you and your family for your generosity.
