Bequests

Bequests are gifts given through a will. They can be in the form of cash, an endowment or a gift-in-kind. Avondale will ensure a donor’s will is prepared without charge by a Seventh-day Adventist trust services director.

Endowments

Endowments are gifts of cash or property Avondale must invest, with the principal remaining for a set period of time or in perpetuity. Avondale may use the interest from an endowment to provide a revenue stream to support departments, facilities, research, staff members who lecture or students. Because Avondale spends only the interest, an endowment lasts beyond a lifetime.

Gifts-in-kind

Gifts-in-kind may include property other than cash, such as pieces of art, books and manuscripts, equipment and land. They may also qualify as tax deductions.

If you believe in leaving a legacy through a bequest, endowment or gift-in-kind, contact President Professor Ray Roennfeldt.
