Bequest Language

This wording is to assist the donor and his/her financial advisor and is in compliance with University of Texas System policies:

Unrestricted Bequest

I, (full name) of (city, state, zip code) give, devise and bequeath a gift of (insert amount of cash, percentage of assets or description of property) to the Board of Regents of The University of Texas System for the use and benefit of The University of Texas at Arlington.

Specified Bequest

I, (full name) of (city, state, zip code) give, devise and bequeath a gift of (insert amount of cash, percentage of assets or description of property) to the Board of Regents of The University of Texas System for the benefit of (insert college, school, program, department, project) at The University of Texas at Arlington.

Residuary Bequest

I, (full name) of (city, state, zip code) give, devise and bequeath a gift of (insert the word "all" or indicate percentage or amount) of the rest, residue and remainder of my estate of whatever kind or wherever situated to the Board of Regents of The University of Texas System for the benefit of (insert college, school, program, department, project, where needed most) at The University of Texas at Arlington.

Contingent Bequest

In the event that the beneficiaries heretofore mentioned (or mentioned in paragraph(s) or section(s)_________) are not living or for some reason are unable or unwilling to accept my bequest, then I devise and bequeath (his, her, their) portion to the Board of Regents of The University of Texas System for the benefit of (insert college, school, program, department, project, where needed most) at The University of Texas at Arlington.

Correct Legal Name of Organization: Most legal documents and distributions should use the full legal corporate title: Board of Regents of The University of Texas System for the benefit of The University of Texas at Arlington (add College, School, Department). The Tax ID number for the Board of Regents is 74-6000203. This is important because nearly all estate gifts to University of Texas Arlington are accepted, processed and administered through the UT System's Office of Development and Gift Planning Services.

Securities Transfers: The Board of Regents of the UT System has given the UT System Office of Development and Gift Planning Services (DGPS) sole responsibility for processing all securities gifts. Please contact DGPS at (512) 499-4300 for transfer instructions or contact the UT Arlington Office of Development at (817) 272-9682, steed@uta.edu.
