Planning for the future and creating the legacy you wish to leave is one of the most effective ways to ensure a lasting impact. Making a gift in your will or living trust, known as a bequest, can guarantee that your legacy endures. Your gift may be a specific dollar amount, a percentage of your estate or the remainder after all other provisions are specified.

For an unrestricted gift that allows Dickinson College to determine how to use the funds based on the most pressing needs, use the following language for your will and/or trust:
"I give to Dickinson College, a nonprofit corporation currently located at PO Box 1773, Carlisle PA 17013, or its successor thereto, _________ [written amount or percentage of the estate or description of property] for its unrestricted charitable use and purpose."
To designate your provision for a particular purpose:
"I give to Dickinson College, a nonprofit corporation currently located at PO Box 1773, Carlisle PA 17013, or its successor thereto, _________ [written amount or percentage of the estate or description of property]. This gift should be used for (state purpose) if and so long as Dickinson College determines that the need exists. If Dickinson College shall determine at the outset or at a later time that the need does not exist, or no longer exists or for some reason it is not possible (or prudent) to administer my gift as originally intended, then Dickinson College may, in its sole and uncontrolled discretion, direct the use of my bequest for a purpose related as closely as possible to that stated above."
If you want to designate your provision for a particular purpose, please contact Elizabeth Mihmet at (717) 254-8926 or email@example.com for more information.
