Hello. I’m Mike Richey. I serve as Vice President for Development at UK, and I have a simple question for you: Have you included the University of Kentucky in your estate plan?
If your answer is yes, will you please let us know?
We first want to say thank you for your intention to benefit the University of Kentucky in this very special way. Leaving such a legacy can make a transformative difference in the lives of generations of deserving students. And those alumni and friends who are planning a future gift for the University through their estates are very special to us. We want to convey how truly appreciative we are.
Then, we want to offer our gift and estate planning services to you without cost or obligation. Our talented gift officers have considerable expertise in gift planning, tax avoidance strategies, wealth distribution and related areas. They are available to help you craft a gift plan for the specific area of the University you want to benefit with your future bequest.
Their skills in careful gift planning can also result in tax savings and other advantages to donors and their families. By working with our gift officers, you can enjoy peace of mind, knowing that your future gift intention for the University of Kentucky will be carried out as you direct.
And finally, we want to invite you to become a member of the University’s Society of 1865. Named to commemorate the University’s founding date, this special Society recognizes alumni and friends who are leaving a legacy at the University of Kentucky through a bequest, charitable gift annuity, life insurance policy, retirement plan, life estate in a residence or farm, or testamentary or life income trust.
If the University of Kentucky is in your estate plan, please let us know. Contact the UK Office of Gift and Estate Planning by phone at 800–875–6272 or 859–257–7886, or by email at email@example.com.
And if the University is not in your estate plan, please consider leaving a legacy in this simple way which will make a positive impact on students’ lives for generations to come.
