Gifts in your will

WomanStripedShirt (6)Have you thought about what your legacy will be? If you feel strongly that Brescia should exist to educate and empower students for future generations, consider leaving a gift in your will.

A gift in your will is commonly known as a bequest. It may be large or small, restricted or unrestricted. It can include cash, securities, real estate, other property, or a percentage of the residue of your estate. With bequests of $20,000 or more, you may create a named, endowed fund that will support Brescia forever. A bequest should be prepared in consultation with your lawyer or an advisor, and discussed with the Advancement Team at Brescia.
