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.
