What will be your legacy?

We often hear about people leaving generous sums to their children, grandchildren, family members, church, synagogue, favorite charity or alma mater.  A gift in a Will is an opportunity for you to say ‘thank you’ and recognize the impact the individual, organization or institution had on your life.  A bequest is usually entered into with forethought, planning and a purposeful desire to acknowledge a personal influence or social common good.

Perhaps you have already made your Will and have included a gift to William Paterson University.  If so, we would like to recognize and thank you for your commitment in helping us achieve our goal to develop exceptional young minds to become the leaders of tomorrow.  We would also like to officially welcome you into our Hobart Legacy Society — a prestigious group of alumni and friends of WP who have included us in their estate plans or made a planned gift.

Maybe you don’t have a Will or haven’t thought about including William Paterson in your estate plans. The opportunity for you to have an impact and to say ‘thank you’ is a simple process of adding a few lines to your existing Will.
