Bequests
A specific bequest is usually a stated dollar amount or a percentage of the estate. It may be in the form of cash, securities, real estate, tangible personal property or any other type of property. Residuary bequest names WUWF as the residual beneficiary to receive the remainder or a percentage of the remainder after specific legacies have been fulfilled. Contingent bequest takes effect only if all primary beneficiaries named in the will die.
 
Life Insurance
Life insurance offers yet another way to make an outright gift to WUWF.  A life insurance policy may make a good gift choice when the policy is no longer needed. It may also be a way to make a gift without loss of current income. A gift of life insurance may be flexible. A donor may give a paid up policy to WUWF or simply name WUWF the primary or secondary beneficiary. Charitable deductions will vary based on how the policy is gifted.
 
Retirement Plans
Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs), tax sheltered annuities, Keogh plans, self employed plans (SEPs), 401(k), 403(b) and other qualified pension and profit-sharing plans can also provide significant support for WUWF. A donor should inform his retirement plan administrator that he or she wishes to name WUWF – University of West Florida Foundation, Inc., as a beneficiary of the plan. The funds will usually pass to WUWF outside of probate and free of all taxes.
