What are the benefits of making a bequest?

• A bequest costs nothing now, but helps to secure the future of the Stanford Humanities Center.
• A bequest is free from federal estate and income taxes.
• A bequest allows you to retain control of your assets during your lifetime and modify your charitable designations should you so choose.
• If you notify the Stanford Humanities Center or the university of your bequest, you will be included as a member in Stanford's Founding Grant Society. It would be our privilege to be able to thank and recognize you now.
