We get this question a lot, and there are many good reasons to share your intentions with us now, even though we won’t receive the gift until you pass.

Here are some important points to remember when considering informing UT of your intentions:

  • Your estate intention counts toward UT’s fundraising success. So, documenting your future gift helps the University today.
  • Documenting your intentions to support programs you care about through your estate helps those programs today. Those intentions are an important marker of success and future support for the programs that you care about.
  • Knowing about your generous estate intention now allows the University to make the plans necessary to ensure your goals are achieved. We want to make sure we get your gift right and talking with you about it ahead of time is the best way to do that.
  • UT is comfortable with the reality that an estate intention can change at any time for many reasons. We recognize that it is our responsibility to maintain a positive relationship with you and ensure that you continue to be confident and happy with your intention.
