Leaving Footprints for the Future,
Underscoring Your Belief in Samford

Everyone leaves footprints in the sands of time, imprints on the lives of others. One of the best ways to do this in a positive way is through thoughtful estate planning. The Beeson family, which made such generous gifts to Samford and its students, is a wonderful example of effective estate planning enhancing the lives of people. But countless other examples reflect the same caring concern for future generations of Samford students.

When you include Samford in your estate plans, you make a positive declaration of your belief in the mission of the University and your concern for its future. Every year, estate gifts provide important funding for Samford programs that, after all, exist only to benefit students. Many times, such thoughtful contributions provide an extra boost that makes a Samford education even more effective and valuable.

Samford's Office of Gift and Estate Planning is a resource you can call on. If you desire, Stan Davis, the office director, will provide you with information and materials that can be helpful as you consider your estate plan. He will be happy to meet with you or simply send you requested complimentary material. Of course, this is done on a confidential basis. To arrange a visit or receive information, complete and return the form at right, or contact the Office of Gift and Estate Planning.

For more information, please download the form and mail, or contact Stan Davis in the office of Planned Giving, University Relations.
