About Bequests
You may be looking for a way to make a significant gift to help support Western Oregon University students and to further the university's mission. A bequest is a gift made through your will or trust. It is one of the most popular and flexible ways that you can support Western.
IRA Charitable Rollover
An IRA rollover allows people age 70½ and older to reduce their taxable income by making a gift directly to Western Oregon University from their IRA.
Beneficiary Designations
A beneficiary designation gift is a simple and affordable way to make a gift to support Western Oregon University and our students. You can designate Western Oregon as a beneficiary of a retirement, investment or bank account or your life insurance policy.
