The College of St. Scholastica's Bequest Language

Leaving a bequest in your estate plan to The College of St. Scholastica will help you to leave your personal legacy in a way that will sustain the College's mission. Such legacy gifts have been – and will continue to be – a valued source of support for the College. You can make a difference by remembering the College in your will or trust. One significant benefit to you is that making a gift through a bequest allows you to continue to use the property during your lifetime.

Types of Bequests


There are a number of ways you can make a bequest to the College. You can leave a specific bequest which involves making a gift of a specific property or a gift for a specific dollar amount or percentage of your overall estate. For example, you may wish to leave $10,000 or 10% of your estate to the College of Saint Scholastica, Inc.

Another kind of bequest is a residual bequest which is made from the balance of an estate after the will or trust has given away each of the specific bequests. A common residual bequest involves leaving a percentage of the residue of the estate to charity. For example, you may wish to leave 30% of the residue of your estate to the College of Saint Scholastica, Inc.
