Your Legacy
A bequest to Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology provides a lasting legacy that will continue to perpetuate the mission of the college and support our students, programs and facilities.  We appreciate such support.
In considering including Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology for a bequest in your Will, we have provided below some simple language statements that may assist you in preparing such a gift. We encourage you to work with your attorney, accountant or financial planner to secure updated legal bequest advice and current language.

  1. Simple Bequest - generally the most frequently used bequest, the specific bequest directs a named amount of money or asset to the College.
    Sample Language for Specific Bequest:
    I give, devise, and bequeath $_________ (or x asset) to Thaddeus Stevens Foundation, a 501(c) 3 nonprofit organization located at 740 East End Ave, Lancaster PA 17602-9937 for the general use and purposes in supporting Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology.
  2. Percentage Bequest - A percentage bequest directs the bequest designation as a percentage of an estate rather than a specific dollar amount or specific item.
      Sample Language for Percentage Bequest:
    I give, devise, and bequeath _____ % to Thaddeus Stevens Foundation a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization located at 740 East End Ave, Lancaster PA 17602-9937 for the general use and purposes in supporting Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology.
  3. Residuary Bequest – The residuum of an estate is the part left after all expenses have been paid and other specific and percentage bequests have been distributed. A residuary bequest gives the residuum of an estate to a designated beneficiary. Because residuary bequests are distributed last, donors sometimes feel a level of comfort knowing their wishes for family and loved ones will be provided for first.

Sample Language for Residuary Bequest:
I give, devise and bequeath the rest, residue, and remainder of my estate consisting of property, both real and personal, whatever situated, which I may own or be entitled to at my death, to The Thaddeus Stevens Foundation, a 501(c) 3 nonprofit organization located at 740 East End Ave, Lancaster PA 17602-9937 for the general use and purposes in supporting Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology.
