The Easiest Way to Make an Impact

A Gift in Your Will or Living Trust

Are you interested in helping Towson University students reach their highest potential but feel overwhelmed by the thought of writing another check or giving up your assets today? A simple, flexible and versatile way to ensure we can continue providing opportunities to students for years to come is with a gift in your will or living trust. 

You can include a bequest to the Towson University Foundation in your will or living trust with just a few sentences. This type of donation ensures that we are able to prepare students to serve as effective, ethical leaders and engaged citizens for generations to come. 

A Real-Life Example

Judith Richardson Kistner, class of '65, and her husband, Louis H. Kistner, met as children living in the same Baltimore neighborhood. They grew up together and along the way became best friends. When Lou left for Vietnam, they corresponded, and six months after his return, they married. The Kistners will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary in June.
