A Legacy of Education

Leave a Legacy of Education

Planned Giving Is for Everyone

Making a will is one of the most impactful ways to extend your love and generosity for your family and friends. It can also help support students and education for generations to come. By leaving a gift to the University of Dallas in your will, you are building a lasting legacy to educate young people, now and for years in the future.

Many supporters of our work choose to include the University of Dallas in their wills in honor of loved ones. Planned giving is one of the simplest and most powerful ways to make an impact. Gifts of any size are appreciated, and you can designate how you’d like your gift to be used to support the programs you care about most. Our supporters choose to leave gifts ranging from $1,000 to $1 million in their wills.

If you need to create a will, the University of Dallas has partnered with FreeWill, a quick, easy, and free online tool you can use. It takes less than 20 minutes to create a will on this site, and the document you create is valid in all 50 states.

Next Steps

  1. To get started, create your will online today with this free tool. Or, see additional information below if you intend to use an attorney to create your will.
  2. Specify within your will the amount or percentage of your estate you’d like to leave (if any) to the University of Dallas and other charitable organizations.
  3. Rest easily knowing that you’ll leave a legacy of support for your loved ones and the causes you care about.

Additional Information

If you’d prefer to use an attorney to draft your will and you choose to leave a gift in your will, we suggest the following language and to advise us of your intentions:

"I bequeath (amount OR percentage) to the University of Dallas, a nonprofit corporation organized and existing under the laws of Texas, with the principal business address of 1845 E. Northgate Drive, Irving, Texas 75062 and federal tax identification number 75-0926755."
