Endowment Gift and Bequest

Endowment giving is vital to continuing the important work of Eastern Mennonite University. An endowment gift and bequest is a combination of a current gift made to support our endowment and a charitable gift made in your will or trust. It is an easy way to support our work today and continue your commitment to Eastern Mennonite University through a legacy gift.

Benefits of a gift and bequest

  • Receive a charitable income tax deduction for your endowment gift this year
  • See firsthand how your gift makes a difference
  • Continue your commitment to our work by leaving a bequest to endow your giving

How an endowed gift and bequest works

You can make a gift to support our endowment this year by contacting us or visiting our website. A charitable bequest is an easy way to continue your commitment to us after you are gone. With the help of an attorney, you can include language in your will or trust specifying a gift to be made to Eastern Mennonite 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.
