Your bequest may be for a set dollar amount, a percent or fraction of your estate, or part of the remainder of your estate after other bequests have been settled.
While unrestricted bequests grant St. Mark's College freedom to allocate your support where the need is greatest, some donors may wish to make a restricted bequest to enhance a specific program or cherished project, or establish a new fund such as an endowed scholarship to honor a favorite instructor or family member.
