“I give and bequeath to the Trustees of Hamilton College, an educational corporation established by law at Clinton, New York, (here follows the amount in dollars, the percentage of the residuary estate, or an accurate description of the securities, real estate or other property given) to be used for the general purposes of the College.”
Personal finances change throughout one’s lifetime. If you leave a percentage, it will remain proportionately the same regardless of the total value of your assets.
You should contact us to discuss your desired purpose so we may provide the appropriate language and documentation.
Please advise the College if you have included Hamilton in your estate plan or completed a planned gift so you may be honored and recognized as a Joel Bristol Associate.
For more information about planned gifts at Hamilton, please call Ben Madonia ’74 or Joni Chizzonite at 866-729-0317.
