To include Stonehill in your will, please ask your legal advisor to consider the following language:

“I bequeath to Stonehill College, Inc., a charitable corporation established under the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, the sum of [dollars or percentage of estate] to be used for the College’s general purposes.”

To name Stonehill as the beneficiary of part (or all) of the residue of an estate:

“I devise and bequeath to Stonehill College, Inc., a charitable corporation established under the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, all [or specify a portion] of the rest, residue, and remainder of my estate, whether real, personal, or mixed, however and whenever acquired and wherever located, to be used [specify how bequest is to be used or state that it is to be used for general purposes].”

To name Stonehill as a contingent beneficiary:

“If any of the above named beneficiaries should predecease me, I then devise and bequeath to Stonehill College, Inc., a charitable corporation established under the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, all the property, real or personal, which said beneficiary or beneficiaries would have received had they survived me.”

Although it is possible to designate a specific purpose for your bequest, the needs of the College change over time. We respectfully request that any specific purpose be stated as a preference, with the final determination left to the discretion of the board of trustees of the College. However, we are certainly pleased to accept gifts and bequests designated for a specific purpose; we do ask that you inform us of your specific intent prior to the drafting of any documents.
