More About Beneficiary Designations

The Lamar University Foundation serves as the preferred channel for private gifts to all areas of Lamar University to support its educational mission.

If you are interested in making a gift but are also concerned about your future needs, keep in mind that beneficiary designation gifts are among the most flexible of all charitable gifts. Even after you complete the beneficiary designation form, you can take distributions or withdrawals from your retirement, investment or bank account and continue to freely use your account. You can also change your mind at any time in the future for any reason, including if you have a loved one who needs your financial help.

Please contact us to learn how to create your legacy at Lamar University by designating Lamar University Foundation as beneficiary of the unused funds in your bank, investment, or retirement account, or the death benefit of your life insurance policy.

  • We can work with your attorney and other advisors to ensure your gift will be used for your intended purpose at Lamar University
  • We can work with your attorney and other advisors to obtain and complete the appropriate forms to designate a beneficiary, Transfer on Death (TOD) beneficiary, or Pay on Death (POD) beneficiary to include support for Lamar University as part of your estate plan

If you include Lamar University in your estate plans, please let us know! We want to ensure your future gift is properly designated to accomplish your objectives and we would like to express our gratitude to you now, rather than just to your heirs or executor later. When you inform us of your gift, we will respect your wishes for recognition or anonymity, and of course, keep any details of your gift that you disclose in strictest confidence. In addition, we hope you will allow us to recognize and thank you by including you as a member of the Lamar University Legacy Society. This is especially important because your membership may inspire others to make similar plans for the future.

For attorneys and advisors:
Generally, beneficiary designations should be directed to:

Lamar University Foundation, a nonprofit organization
located at P.O. Box 11500
Beaumont, TX 77710
Federal Tax ID #23-7298265

Additionally, please encourage your clients to let us know of their intention to include Lamar University in their estate plans. This expression of present plans is subject to revocation or modification at any time and is not legally binding.
