Sample Gift Language for your Will

Residual Gift Language

A residual bequest comes to us after your estate expenses and specific bequests are paid:

I give, bequeath and devise all (or ____ percent) of the rest, residue and remainder of my estate to Medaille College, a corporation of the State of New York, located in Buffalo, New York the general and educational purposes of the college.

Specific Gift Language

Naming Medaille College as a beneficiary of a specific amount and purpose, such as a scholarship or specific program, from your estate is easy:

I give, bequeath, and devise to Medaille College, a corporation of the State of New York, located in Buffalo, New York the sum of $_______ , (or, ____ percent of the rest, residue and remainder of my estate) to be used to support ___________________ (name of program or academic area). In the event the need to support _____________ no longer exists, The Board of Trustees shall be and hereby are authorized to use this bequest for a purpose in keeping with the spirit of this gift in the best interest of the College.

Contingent Gift Language

Medaille College can be named as a contingent beneficiary in your will or personal trust if one or more of your specific bequests cannot be fulfilled:

If (insert name) is not living at the time of my demise, I give and devise to Medaille College located in Buffalo, NY, the sum of $ _______ (or all or a percentage of the residue of my estate) to be used for its general support (or for the support of a specific fund or program).

I'm grateful for the education I've received.

The instructors were knowledgeable and welcomed class discussions, with
respect for each student's contribution. I've learned how to be a more
effective leader. My capstone class gave insight on how to combine all
the education learned to operate a business. That's when I realized how
much I had sharpened my knowledge.
