Ways to Give
Harnessing the energy of future entrepreneurs and business managers, training accountants to be trusted advisors and eagle-eyed auditors, educating insightful economists and financial professionals, and grooming those who will formulate marketing messages for American and international businesses are the mission of the College of Business & Economics. It's a crucial role, as we all know.
Continuing this mission and even improving its various aspects is truly important. We each have the opportunity to assist with this valuable mission in a special way.

Add a gift provision to your will
Adding a gift provision to your will or revocable trust "to the West Virginia University Foundation, Inc. for the benefit of the College of Business & Economics" will create your gift. Your attorney can add language about the specific use of your gift also.
Your gift may be directed for scholarships, student enrichment funds, faculty development, technology support, start-up funds for focused initiatives, or the Dean's Fund for Excellence. All will aid the College in a valued way.
Create an endowment
You may also specify that your fund be endowed, which means that it will benefit the College on a permanent basis and will earn the amounts to be used for the stated purpose. The endowment fund may be named for anyone you wish to honor.
Retirement asset beneficiary
Another way to accomplish any of these useful gifts is to change the after-death beneficiary of your retirement asset account (using the same wording as for a will). It's easy to do by contacting the account's administrator and completing a change of beneficiary form. Using a paid-up life insurance policy to provide a gift also works well.
Discuss your gift questions with Luke O'Connell, assistant dean of development, at 304-293-8888 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Helping improve the caliber of the educational offerings of the College can be a very satisfying choice — and one that will benefit many!
