A simple, flexible way to ensure that we are able to continue creating positive change on a global scale for years to come is a gift in your estate plan or will — known as a charitable bequest. An easy way to support our efforts is to give a percentage of your assets to the W. P. Carey School of Business by including a statement in your will or trust.

Leaving 3% of your estate to the school will allow you to provide for the people you love, as well as other priorities, while also including the W. P. Carey School and its mission in your plans. This is just one way to leave a legacy and provide significant support to the school's students and faculty.

Before making any pledge or request, seek the advice of your financial planner or legal advisor.

Give 3

Allocating a percentage of your assets, rather than a specific amount, offers you greater flexibility. For example, a 3% gift would provide:

Value of total life assets Give 3 Amount of gift to W. P. Carey
$100,000 3% of assets $3,000
$500,000 3% of assets $15,000
$750,000 3% of assets $22,500
$1,000,000 3% of assets $30,000

Note: Your gift also entitles your estate to an unlimited federal estate tax charitable deduction. For advice, please contact an attorney or tax adviser.

The Cornerstone Society at ASU

When you arrange an estate gift to ASU, you become a member of a unique group of donors whose passion for our university transcends a single generation. No matter how far ASU has come and how far it may reach, there is still the cornerstone of Old Main, a symbol of our beginnings, on ASU’s Tempe campus. The Cornerstone Society honors supporters like you whose forward-thinking planning and preparation makes the future of ASU possible. Members of this special group receive invitations to exclusive member-only events and recognition in donor publications.
