Gift by Will Language
A gift through your will or bequest provision for a percentage of your residuary estate might be worded like this:
“I give _________ percent (____ %) of the residue of my estate to Connecticut College, Office of College Advancement, 270 Mohegan Avenue, New London, CT 06320 for the general use and purposes of the College.”
A gift through your will or bequest for a specific sum could be worded like this:
“I give the sum of _________ dollars ($________) to Connecticut College, Office of College Advancement, 270 Mohegan Avenue, New London, CT 06320 for the general use and purposes of the College.”
You can instruct the College to use your bequest for a specific restricted purpose, such as an endowed scholarship, or designate it to support a specific department or program. Your bequest can also be used to perpetuate your annual gift. What’s more, your bequest can be unrestricted—meaning you allow the College to use the funds to respond to its evolving needs. It is important to let the Office of College Advancement know about your bequest, especially if you are thinking about restricting it to an endowment or designating its purpose. Consulting with the College will help us understand your intent and honor your commitment. Your bequest can be held in confidence and remain anonymous if you prefer.
