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 Jackson State 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 Jackson State 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 Jackson State University, please contact us. We would be happy to assist you. If you have been so generous as to include a bequest to Jackson State 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.
