Augustana's Bequest Language

An excellent way for you to support Augustana's mission is to leave us a gift in your will, living trust or with a beneficiary designation. One significant benefit of making a gift by bequest is that it allows you to continue to use the property you will leave to charity during your life. Another benefit is that you are able to leave a lasting legacy.
