Sample Language for Your Will or Trust
“I give, devise, and bequeath (specific gift; i.e.: dollar amount, percentage of estate, or rest and residue of estate) to the Board of Regents of The University of Texas System (“Board of Regents”) for the use and benefit of The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. Such funds shall never become a part of the Permanent University Fund, the Available University Fund, or the General Fund of the State of Texas and shall never be subject to appropriation by the Legislature of the State of Texas. If in the opinion of the Board of Regents, future circumstances change so that the purposes for which this gift is intended become illegal, impracticable, or no longer able to be carried out to meet the needs of The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, said Board of Regents may designate an alternative use to further the objective of The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, in the spirit of the original purpose.”
*If you are interested in supporting a specific project or program, it is best to discuss your plans with our planned giving professionals before completing your bequest language to confirm your wishes can be met by MD Anderson.
Please note: The policies of MD Anderson Cancer Center do not allow MD Anderson or its representatives to serve as personal representative, executor, trustee or witness for a will or trust.
