About Bequests

You may be looking for a way to make a significant gift to help further our mission. A bequest is a gift made through your will or trust. It is one of the most popular and flexible ways that you can support our cause.

Charitable Gift Annuity

A charitable gift annuity is a great way you can make a gift to Wake Forest and benefit. You transfer your cash or property to the University and we promise to make fixed payments to you for life at a rate based on your age.

Qualified Charitable Distribution

A qualified charitable distribution, sometimes referred to as an IRA Charitable Rollover, allows people age 70½ and older to reduce their taxable income by making a gift directly from their IRA.
