Make a Gift Through Your Will

Whether you are writing your will for the first time or revising your existing plans, including Agnes Scott is a simple way to make a lasting impact.

In your will, you can name Agnes Scott the beneficiary of a set dollar amount, a percentage of your estate, or a percentage of your residual estate after you have taken care of your loved ones.

If you have already written your will, it is usually very easy to create a codicil, or amendment, to your will. A codicil with specific changes, witnessed and notarized, is typically honored by courts with the original will.

It’s always a good idea to review your will periodically to be sure it still represents your wishes, especially if conditions, assets or relationships have changed. Times when it might be most important to review your documents include when purchasing or selling property, when children are born or have grown up, or when your marital or financial status changes.

To discuss creating a named endowed fund through your will, please contact Lee Davis, senior associate director of leadership and legacy giving, at ldavis@agnesscott.edu or 404.471.5448.

Agnes Scott cannot offer you legal or financial advice; we recommend you contact a qualified attorney to answer any questions you might have about your estate plans. We encourage you to share this suggested bequest language with your attorney as you prepare or revise your will.

“People who come to me to make their plans want to be sure that the people and things that matter the most to them are cared for – children, family, businesses, charitable causes; the things that spark fire in their souls. ”
