Gifts in Your Will

How it works

Leaving a legacy gift in your will can create amazing opportunities for the future. These gifts, which are typically included in a donor’s estate plans, can be designated to specific initiatives like buildings, programs, scholarships or bursaries. 

By adding NAIT to your will, you can make a lasting difference to students, applied research and programming, and receive significant tax benefits along the way.

Making your donation

If you are considering leaving a legacy gift in your will, you should consult with a legal advisor and our Department of Advancement to ensure your gift best fulfills your wishes. We will guarantee 100% of your gift contributes in the way you specify.

If you already have a will and would like to add NAIT as a beneficiary, consult with a lawyer to make an amendment.

Looking for more estate and planned giving options? Consider making a bequest to NAIT.
