Estate Gifts

Will power – the power to use the assets accumulated over a lifetime of accomplishment to provide for your loved ones as you see fit. You can also use your will power to leave a gift (called a bequest) in your estate plans to support UOIT students after your needs and those of your loved ones have been met.

You can leave a bequest in your estate plans by including:
• A residual amount or a portion of your estate, e.g. 10 per cent
• A specific dollar amount or an asset such as your house, cottage or artwork

BENEFITS OF A BEQUEST GIFT:

• You have the power to access your assets in your lifetime
• Your estate will realize tax-savings while at the same time you have supported UOIT students
• You can change your mind: a bequest can be revoked or modified if your circumstances change

WORDING YOUR BEQUEST:

“I give to the University of Ontario Institute of Technology at Oshawa, Ontario, Canada the sum or $_____ (or per cent of my estate) for the use and purposes of the university as its Board of Governors may determine.”
