Bequests

You may leave a bequest to Randolph-Macon under your will or name the College as the beneficiary of your life insurance policy or retirement account.

RMC fountain plaza and Mary Branch dorm Bequests continue to account for a major portion of the College’s endowment and provide significant funding for the College’s programs, scholarships, and professorships.

Many of Randolph-Macon College’s alumni and friends have become partners in its history by remembering the College in their estate plans.

Bequests have provided, and will continue to provide, a certain and solid foundation for many lofty and ambitious dreams.

You can make a bequest to Randolph-Macon College in several different ways.

  • Specific Bequest leaves a specified amount of money or a specific asset. This type of bequest is particularly appropriate in the case of smaller bequests.
    For example, “I give [insert specific dollar amount or asset] to Randolph-Macon College, Ashland, Virginia, and request that this gift be used by the College where the need is greatest.”

  • Percentage Bequest specifies the percentage of your estate that will go to the College.
    For example, “I give Randolph-Macon College, Ashland, Virginia, [insert percentage] of my residuary estate to be used by the College where the need is greatest.”

  • Residuary Bequest gives the College the assets that remain after providing for others.
    For example, “I give my residuary estate to Randolph- Macon College, Ashland, Virginia, to be used by the College where the need is greatest.”
