What is Your Plan...

And how will it impact your loved ones and Aggie athletics?


Do you ever wonder what the future holds? We all want to ensure that our loved ones are well cared for after we are gone. Yet, many Americans put off creating a plan until it is too late. Others have a will or trust in place, but need to update that plan to reflect life changes.

There is no better time than the new year to create or update your plan, and it is easier than you think.

Take advantage of a great resource to assist you in your planning. Our website includes many valuable tools, including informational tutorials about wills, an online will planner and a downloadable guide to planning your will or trust.

Not only does creating a plan provide for and protect your loved ones, but it is also an excellent way for you to support the 12th Man Foundation's mission by leaving a bequest in your will or living trust earmarked to support Aggie athletics.

One significant benefit of making a gift through a bequest is that it costs you nothing up front. You retain full usage and ownership of your resources during your lifetime, which means you can continue to enjoy your assets just like before.

There are several ways you can make a bequest to the 12th Man Foundation:

  • A specific bequest involves making a gift of a specific asset such as real estate, jewelry, other property or a gift for a specific dollar amount.
  • A percentage bequest involves leaving a specific percentage of your overall estate or certain asset(s) to the 12th Man Foundation.
  • A residual bequest is made from the balance of an estate after the will or trust has given away each of the specific bequests. A common residual bequest involves leaving a percentage of the residue of the estate to the 12th Man Foundation.
  • A contingent bequest is made to the 12th Man Foundation only if the purpose of the primary bequest cannot be met.

You can choose to designate that a bequest be used for a general or specific purpose so you have the peace of mind knowing that your gift will be used as intended. Whether it be supporting scholarships for student-athletes through the 1922 Fund or allocating your gift for a specific A&M team, the possibilities are numerous and will leave a lasting impact on Aggieland. We hope you will please thoughtfully consider making a forever impact on Texas A&M student-athletes through your estate plans. a

"We want Texas A&M to have the best programs across the board and have programs we can all be proud of.

It's a real pleasure for us to do this, because I think back about all the support Aggies have given me. No one accomplishes everything in life by themselves, and A&M and the Aggie network have definitely been there for me throughout my life."
