It’s no secret that the ministry of the University Catholic Center depends upon your generous stewardship. Your estate gift through your will, or a legacy gift while still living, will help fund current programs and build our endowment. A variety of giving instruments exist to help alleviate your tax burden and benefit our mission. Consult your tax attorney or contact the Development Office to discuss your options.
The following are examples of bequest statements that may be used as models by you and your attorney in preparing your bequest or trust designation. We welcome the opportunity to work with you and your advisers to develop language tailored to your specific needs. Such collaboration ensures that the correct legal language is used and that your wishes are accurately understood. Please contact Elizabeth Lange, Director of Development, at 512-476-7351 x13 or via email for additional information.
