Every gift in every Will makes a difference whatever the size. You can simply make your gift to the University or choose to specify how your gift should be used for the benefit of future generations.  Gifts with no restrictions help the University to make a difference where the need is greatest and the University will direct these gifts to projects where help is most needed.

If you wish to specify how your gift should be used here are some areas you may wish to consider supporting:
