An Example of How It Works
Meet Tom and Martha. When they got married and created a will, they included a $75,000 gift to ODU. As the family grew to include three children, Tom and Martha decided to revise their gift to ensure their children's future financial security.
They met with their attorney and revised the gift language so that ODU received a percentage of their estate, instead of a specific amount. Tom and Martha now rest easy knowing their plans will provide for the people and charitable work they love.
