How a bequest works

A bequest is one of the easiest gifts to make.

Here are some of the ways to leave a bequest to North Carolina State University

  • Designate the North Carolina State University Foundation, Inc. as a full, partial or contingent beneficiary of your retirement account (IRA, 401(k), 403(b) or pension)
  • Name the North Carolina State University Foundation, Inc. as a beneficiary of your life insurance policy

A bequest may be made in several ways
