Gifts from Your Estate and Life-Income Gifts

Planned Giving

"It is my joy to support an institution that not only provided me with a superb education but also introduced me to my closest friends, my life long mentor and even my husband!"
Judith Fryer, AB '72
“I am so proud to be a Washington University and Brown School graduate. I have had wonderful opportunities throughout my career; none of which would have been possible without this school.”
Bonnie M. Orkow, MSW '70
“I feel strongly indebted to the university and the medical school for the education and inspiration that I received.  They made everything else that I did possible. Without them, I wouldn’t be where I am today.”
Robert C. Drews, MD, AB '52, MD '55
