A bequest from a will or a living trust lets you make a gift of any size to Shorter University free of estate tax. During your lifetime, your assets will remain in your control, and you can make changes in your estate plan at your discretion. You can designate a specific amount or a percentage of your estate to Shorter University, with or without restrictions.

Just like many in the Shorter Family before you, your bequest can create a legacy for you or a loved one while shaping the future for generations of Shorter students and faculty. Your bequest may be used to establish or support an endowment, and it will be considered an annual gift when paid out.
