Bequests, which are made through a written will, have been important to Knox College since its founding in 1837. Today, bequests account for a major portion of the College's endowment and provide significant funding for academic programs, scholarship aid, student programs, facilities and the endowment.
Through a bequest in your will, you can give cash, securities, real estate, and other types of property.
