IUC Gift through your Will (FreeWill)

One of the most powerful ways to support the advanced Japanese language training at the Inter-University Center for years and generations to come is through a gift in your will.

In order to make this process as easy for you as possible, we’ve partnered with our friends at FreeWill, an intuitive online service that allows you to write a free, legal will online in less than 25 minutes.

Everyone needs a will and, odds are, you either don’t have one or, if you do, it could probably do with an update.

Prefer to work with an attorney to write your will? You can still use FreeWill to document your wishes, which will save you time and money at the lawyer’s office.

Secure your legacy for the people and causes you love today.

Write your will now.

IUC Gift via IRA (FreeWill)

If you were born before June 30th, 1949, and you have a traditional IRA, then there’s a smarter way to give to Inter-University Center for Japanese Language Studies. You can make a contribution, also known as a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD), from your IRA that is 100% tax free, whether or not you itemize deductions on your tax return.

Learn more about QCD donations and how they can make a big difference on your tax return here.
