Make a Bequest

  • You can create an enduring legacy that will impact Olivet’s mission and its students for years to come by remembering Olivet Nazarene University in your Will.
  • The size of the gift that you set aside for Olivet can be as large or small as you want. There is no limit, and your estate will receive a tax deduction for the amount of your Bequest.

    Creating a Bequest

    Creating a charitable Bequest through a provision in one’s Will or Trust is quite easy. You may leave a Bequest for a specific amount of cash, part of your estate or the remainder of your estate.

    If you’re interested in establishing a lasting legacy by remembering Olivet Nazarene University in your Will, please call us at 815-939-5171 or email us at We are willing and available to help you in any way that we can.

    We also have a comprehensive, user-friendly Wills Planner tool available online that may prove to be useful as you begin your estate planning.

    A Bequest of any amount to Olivet Nazarene University automatically qualifies you for membership in Olivet’s Heritage Society. This society recognizes and honors those individuals who establish a legacy of philanthropy and advocacy through the University.

    We also encourage you to visit our Planned Giving Center for more information on Bequests and other forms of planned giving.
