Leaving a Legacy

MoffattAs a professor of English, Dr. Walter Moffatt ’32 created a lasting legacy at Hendrix College during his lifetime. During his 29 years as a member of the Hendrix faculty, Dr. Moffatt had a strong presence in the Hendrix community. When he died on Christmas Day 2007 at the age of 96, he added to that legacy through a generous donation to the college in his will. With this gift to the new Student Life and Technology Center, the impact of his long and well-lived life will be felt by generations of Hendrix students who did not have the privilege of calling him "Professor."

Hendrix College often hears from alumni, staff, friends, and faculty, such as Dr. Moffatt, who have named Hendrix College as a beneficiary in their estate. These commitments play a vital role in the mission of the college. If you would like to have an impact on the college today and make a designation in your estate through an IRA, insurance policy or bequest, please provide the language below for your attorney:

"I hereby give, devise, and bequeath to Hendrix College in Conway, Arkansas, (the sum of $___) or (____% of my estate) or (specific items or property) or (the rest, residue, and remainder of my estate). This gift may be used to further the educational objectives of Hendrix College in such a manner as the Trustees of the College direct."

In addition to your attorney, please notify the Hendrix College Advancement Office of your intentions so that we might be able to honor you and your commitment to Hendrix. Thank you for your interest in leaving a legacy that will support the experience of generations of students at Hendrix.

You may also wish to further designate your gift for a particular purpose or program. We invite you to contact us to learn more about the benefits as an estate gift donor. Please contact the Advancement Office at 501.450.1223 if you would like further information.
