Sample Bequest Language

Unrestricted Bequest
(For the Law School’s Unrestricted Use)

You may designate your bequest to be applied to the Law School’s unrestricted purposes (an “unrestricted bequest”). The funds will give the Law School flexibility to meet its greatest needs at the time your bequest is realized.

“I give to The University of Virginia Law School Foundation, a Virginia non-stock corporation located in Charlottesville, Virginia, the sum of $____________ [or property described herein] [or ____ percent (____%) of the rest of my estate] for its general purposes.”

Restricted Bequest
(For a Purpose You Designate)

You may instead designate a specific purpose for your bequest (a “restricted bequest”). For example, your bequest may be earmarked to endow a scholarship or professorship, enhance faculty research, support loan forgiveness programs, or to provide funds for another purpose that advances the mission of the Law School.

“I give to The University of Virginia Law School Foundation, a Virginia non-stock corporation located in Charlottesville, Virginia, the sum of $____________ [or property described herein] [or ____ percent (____%) of the rest of my estate] to be applied for the following purpose: _________________.”

If you want to restrict your bequest to a particular program or area at the Law School or to establish a scholarship or other endowed fund, we recommend that you ask the Law School Foundation to review your intended provision to be certain that your wishes can be carried out.
