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. You can specify a particular asset, a stated sum of money, or the whole or a stated percentage of the residuary estate. You can also designate that your gift be used for a specific purpose. View a sample of bequest language.
A gift to Knox College through a will bequest has several advantages for you:
More than 6,600 alumni, faculty, staff, and friends made gifts to Knox during FY2019. Gifts to the Knox Fund totaled more than $3.7 million, while another $7.6 million went toward campus facility improvements, including the Phase I renovation of the Umbeck Science-Mathematics Center.
