Bequest Language

Bequests for the benefit of the University at Buffalo should be made to the University at Buffalo Foundation, Inc., which accepts, manages and distributes gifts on behalf of the university. The following sample bequest language will ensure that your gift directly benefits UB for the purpose you specify.

"I give, devise, and bequeath to the University at Buffalo Foundation, Inc., a nonprofit education corporation, headquartered in Buffalo, NY, the (sum of $_____) or (_____% of my estate) or (the property described herein) or (the remainder of my estate) to benefit the University at Buffalo."

If you would like to restrict your gift to a particular university program or academic area, the Office of Planned Giving would be pleased to work with you and your legal adviser on the specific language to ensure that your gift can and will be used as you intend.
