A gift in your will or trust, a bequest, works well for people who want to support SDSU but are unable to part with their resources today. Bequests can support the colleges and areas on campus that mean the most to you, or you can make your gift unrestricted to support the University’s greatest needs.

We’ve partnered with FreeWill to provide an online estate planning tool. Allowing you to create your legal will or revocable trust free of charge and in as little as 20 minutes. Best of all you can print your documents to have them reviewed by your own professional advisor to make sure it’s the right fit for you. If you’ve already created a gift in your estate plan, please fill out this form to let us know.
