Was your time at Nyenrode a life changing experience? For alumna Gayle van Beeten it certainly was. "This is where I discovered my own strengths," says Gayle. "Nyenrode feels like an extra family to me." She thought ahead and included Nyenrode Fund in her will. Alumnus Jelle van der Meer also sees the importance to include Nyenrode in his will. "There are so many great things that Nyenrode can do with my contribution, I can't take it with me and that's how I can help to make a difference."
Include Nyenrode Fund in your will and make a final impact on the future of your alma mater. In the case of a donation to Nyenrode Fund, you can think of a specific amount or a percentage of your legacy. This is your chance to show the impact Nyenrode Business Universiteit has had on your life. Nyenrode Fund is an ANBI organization, which means inhabitants of the Netherlands will not have to pay inheritance tax.
You can indicate to Nyenrode what you would like to use your legacy for. Consider, for example, preserving the heritage, financing research, investing in current educational facilities or scholarships for future talent who lack the resources to help fund their education at Nyenrode. This way you can offer someone the opportunity you had yourself. Together we can ensure that Nyenrode's continuity is guaranteed in the future.
Bequeathing to Nyenrode is fiscally attractive as the Nyenrode Fund has the ANBI status. As a result, we do not have to pay inheritance tax soall of your donation will go to the fund and to the purpose you want to spend it on. If you have not designated a target, we will find a good destination for you.
For those interested in bequeathing to Nyenrode and living in the Netherlands, we can have their current will checked by a civil-law notary. Then a notary will check whether the will still meets your wishes and whether it is still up to date, and, for example, whether matters can be arranged more attractively from a tax perspective.
For our alumni in the US the American Friends of Nyenrode University could advise on how to go about.
Sometimes alumni decide to include Nyenrode Fund in their will without us knowing. We are incredibly grateful for that, but would love to know about it. That way, we could keep you informed about developments of our beautiful university.
