Why Leave Charitable Gifts in Your Will? Bequests allow individuals to make larger gifts than they could during their lifetime to support our work. In addition, gifts through a will are flexible— they can be changed as individuals' circumstances in life change. You Can Revoke Your Will Note that one of the articles in your will is "revocation of prior wills and codicils." Relationships and situations change. You are free to alter your will with a codicil or to change your will entirely at any time. If you have a prior will, ask your attorney what to do with it to avoid confusion about which version is most current. We want to work with you to create a gift that best fits your circumstances and our needs. To learn more about including a gift in your will in support of IUPUI, please contact us today.
