Bequests & Wills

You can choose to leave some or all of your estate to Augustana Campus, University of Alberta, including cash, investments, property, real estate, or other assets of your estate. By indicating your wish to donate in your will, you can make a substantial future gift that will not affect your current lifestyle.

A bequest is often referred to as the "Ultimate Gift" because it is a gift of cash or property that an individual makes in their will and usually takes one of the following two forms:

  1. An unrestricted bequest allows the University to use your gift where it is felt to be needed most.
  2. A restricted bequest is a gift with a specific purpose. You may specify the gift be used for a particular area of interest (i.e., scholarships, bursaries, endowed chair, or research). Restricted gifts may be endowed in perpetuity or may be directed to serve a one time purpose.
