We all want to leave a legacy—a gift that will benefit future generations after we’re gone—but most of us face real limits on what we can contribute during our lifetime.
By leaving a bequest or naming Case Western Reserve University as the beneficiary under a life insurance policy, IRA, deferred-compensation plan or similar retirement plan, you can benefit the institution, and, in many cases, leave a larger legacy than you ever thought possible.
These gifts not only support the vision and strategic plans of the university, but also create a continuing remembrance of your values, make a difference to the university program or project of your choice and provide evidence of your generosity and helpfulness—leaving a lasting legacy that you can be happy about.
