Your Gift Makes a Difference

Your ongoing gifts to Whitworth demonstrate that you care about Whitworth’s present and future. But what if you could continue your annual support forever? Not only is this possible – it’s easy.

A future gift to Whitworth is a gift from your estate—a transfer of cash, securities or other property —made through your estate plans.

Some of the advantages to you of making a future gift to Whitworth include:

  • It costs you nothing now, yet gives you the satisfaction of knowing you have provided for Whitworth and its students in the future;
  • You retain control of and use of your assets during your lifetime;
  • You may modify your gift if your circumstances change;
  • Gifts to Whitworth from your estate are exempt from federal estate taxes.

Start Your Legacy

By initiating a future gift to Whitworth today, you will create a lasting legacy and allow tomorrow’s students to receive Whitworth’s transformative education and you will help sustain and ensure the university’s success.
