Leaving Your Legacy
Planned Giving at California Western
Charitable gift planning can yield a number of important benefits for you and your family. In this guide, you will
learn about some charitable giving ideas you may wish to incorporate into your estate plan. We hope you find this
information useful as you consider making a planned gift to California Western.
We at California Western are proud of our rich history of inspiring bright law students as they become passionate,
dedicated lawyers, our strong tradition of encouraging social responsibility, and providing access to justice.
Today, our work is more important than ever, and we are deeply grateful for the support of our alumni and friends.
These generous individuals, like Ken and Patti Greenman, choose to support the Law School annually but have also
taken the extra step of remembering California Western in their wills, trusts, or estate plans.
Through charitable gift planning, many of our donors discover that they are able to give a more impactful gift than
they thought possible —one that yields important financial benefits to their family but can also make a difference
to our students for generations to come.
Thank you for taking the time to consider these opportunities to support our students and the important work we are
doing at California Western.
If you are considering a planned gift of any kind, please consult your own legal or tax advisors. The staff in the
Office of Institutional Advancement are happy to speak with your advisors as well.
The Office of Institutional Advancement is happy to help you explore the options for designating a bequest or other
planned gift to the Law School, and can provide sample language to share with your legal advisor.
If you have any questions or would like to learn more, please contact the Law School directly at campaign100 [@]
