An investment in the future

Would you like to make a meaningful gift to help educate young people at Southern Arkansas University but want to retain your assets during your lifetime? Consider including SAU Foundation in your will. A gift through your will, known as a bequest, is simple and you can change the provisions at any time. You can give a general, unrestricted gift to SAU Foundation or specify a particular college, department, or program you want to benefit.

Types of Bequests
• A specific bequest gives a stated sum of money (e.g., $5,000) or other asset to SAU Foundation.
• A percentage or residue gives SAU Foundation a certain percentage of your estate (e.g., 5 percent) or the “rest, residue and remainder” after all other bequests, debts, and taxes have been paid.

To learn more about impacting the future of SAU with a bequest, contact Jeanie Bismark or Josh Kee at (870) 235-4078. You can also find more ways to give on our website at
