Make an Impact for Life
A Gift in Your Will or Living Trust
Interested in helping the University of Idaho with our mission but feel overwhelmed by the thought of writing another check or giving up your assets today? A simple, flexible and versatile way to ensure we can continue our work for years to come is a gift in your will or living trust, known as a charitable bequest.
By including a bequest to the UI Foundation in your will or living trust, you are ensuring that our students succeed and learn to lead for years to come. As little as one sentence of bequest language is all that is needed to complete your gift. Your gift also entitles your estate to an unlimited federal estate tax charitable deduction.
Dennis Ujiiye ‘70 and Debra Murata ’73 met at the University of Idaho in the fall of l969. Dennis was raised on a farm in Nampa, Idaho. Deb’s parents were sent to an internment camp during World War II. After the war, they farmed near Ontario, Oregon. Dennis and Deb’s parents valued education, encouraging them to pursue a college degree.
Today Dennis farms the Murata land. Deb is retired from a career in special education. They raised a daughter and have a granddaughter. In 2014 they committed a portion of their estate to UI to benefit the Colleges of Agriculture and Life Sciences and Education.
The alumni couple, like so many, have fond memories of not only meeting their spouses while at college, but also of the opportunities their education provided them in their respective careers.
