An Example of How It Works
When Tom and Maggie got married, they made a point to put together a will to protect their assets. Both UT Knoxville alums, their love of the university runs deep, so they decided to include a $75,000 bequest to us in their will.
As their family grew to include three children, Tom and Maggie revised their gift to ensure their children's future financial security. They met with their attorney and altered the gift language so that UT received a percentage of their estate, instead of a specific amount. Tom and Maggie now rest easy knowing their plans will provide for the people and charitable work they love long after they're gone.
