Bequests and Estate plan gifts


A bequest is a gift from your estate a transfer of cash, securities, or other property made through your estate plans. You can make a bequest to Durban University of Technology by including language in your will or living trust leaving a portion of your estate to the university, or by designating Durban University of Technology as a beneficiary of your retirement account or life insurance policy.

Remembering Durban University of Technology with a bequest from your estate will help sustain and strengthen the university in years to come.
To assist you in preparing your bequest, we will provide you with sample bequest language.
