A Gift in Your Will or Living Trust
Interested in supporting the University of Houston's students and programs but overwhelmed by the thought of writing another check or giving up your assets today? A simple, flexible and versatile way to ensure a stronger university for years to come is a gift in your will or living trust, known as a charitable bequest.
By including a bequest to UH in your will or living trust, you are ensuring that we will be here to provide future generations with unparalleled opportunities for learning, discovery and engagement in a real-world setting. Your gift also entitles your estate to an unlimited federal estate tax charitable deduction.
UH: Like One of the Family
For brothers Carl Arp '64 and Joe Arp '61, their close connection to the University of Houston began long ago. As kids, they lived just a short distance from campus.
"We saw UH grow and improve right in front of us," Carl said.
The Arps went on to earn degrees from the C.T. Bauer College of Business and became active members of UH's philanthropic community. Carl and his wife, Dorothy, and Joe and his wife, Elizabeth, recently decided to create a lasting impact by naming UH as beneficiary of their respective estates. For two brothers who speak as if the University is part of their family, this manner of giving back always seemed the right thing to do.
"I believe that every little bit you do for the University matters," Carl said.
