Gifts from Your Will or Trust
Need to preserve assets? You can plan a gift to us that will take effect only after your other obligations are fulfilled.
How It Works
- Include a gift to Smith College in your will or trust. (Here is sample bequest language for your will.)
- Make your bequest unrestricted or direct it to a specific purpose.
- Indicate that you would like a percentage of the balance remaining in your estate or trust, or indicate a specific amount.
- Tell us about your gift so we may celebrate your generosity now.
