Roger Williams University Heritage Society
Alumni, parents and friends who have generously chosen to make a gift to to Roger Williams University and/or Roger Williams University School of Law in their estate plans or through a deferred gift are invited to join the Roger Williams University Heritage Society.
Your gift could be used to bring much needed scholarship to students, to help build the University's endowment, to provide additional library resources or to support a program that is very close to you. There are many ways that you can help Roger Williams University and/or Roger Williams University School of Law, some of which might also help lower the estate taxes for your heirs or provide you with additional income in your retirement.
If you have already included Roger Williams University and/or Roger Williams University School of Law in your estate plans, we encourage you to please let us know so that we can include you in the Roger Williams University Heritage Society.

A charitable remainder trust provides you or other named individuals income each year for life or a period not exceeding 20 years from assets you give to the trust you create.
You fund this type of trust with cash or appreciated assets—and may qualify for a federal income tax charitable deduction when you itemize. You can also make additional gifts; each one also qualifies for a tax deduction. The trust pays you, each year, a variable amount based on a fixed percentage of the fair market value of the trust assets. When the trust terminates, the remaining principal goes to Roger Williams University as a lump sum.
