A bequest is one of the easiest and most popular planned giving methods.

By including a gift to the Texas A&M Foundation in your will or living trust, you can leave a legacy that will live on in Aggieland.

How It Works:

With the help of your attorney, you can include language in your will or living trust specifying that a gift be made to the Foundation after your lifetime.

Through a bequest, you can give a specific dollar amount, a specific asset such as real estate, or the residual balance of your estate after all other commitments have been resolved.

You can also designate an area or program you want your bequest to support at Texas A&M. Our experienced development officers will work with you to create a gift agreement that will ensure your wishes are upheld.
