An Example of How It Works

Young family with kidsMeet Tom and Martha. When they got married and created a will, they included a $75,000 gift to UK. As the family grew to include three children, Tom and Martha decided to revise their gift to ensure their children's future financial security.

They met with their attorney and revised the gift language so that UK received a percentage of their estate, instead of a specific amount. Tom and Martha now rest easy knowing their plans will provide for the people and the institution they love.
