“I was brought up to give back. I believe that, ‘To those whom much is given, much is expected.’ My UNH education gave me the opportunity to have a satisfying career that allowed me to gather some assets. I want others to have the same opportunity for a good education, so I am leaving a portion of those assets to the University.”
“I made a will because I wanted to make sure that after I die my assets will be divided among family members and charitable organizations the way that I want, and that they will be put to the best possible use. I don’t want the distribution of my assets to be decided by a third party; I want to make my own choices.
One of my priorities is the University. And I invite you to consider your legacy at the University New Haven.”
