One of the simplest ways to make a gift is through a beneficiary designation. You can specify the individuals and charities you want to support and you can also specify the percentage of the assets you want each beneficiary to receive.

Beneficiary designations are available when giving the following assets: 

Retirement Assets

An alternative to a bequest gift is to designate Brandeis University as the beneficiary of your retirement assets. This gift is simple because you can control the transfer of these assets at your death without changing your will or living trust.

Life Insurance

Brandeis can be named as a partial or whole beneficiary of your insurance policy.

Other Assets

We can be named as a beneficiary of POD or TOD accounts, including investments and bank accounts.
