Planned gifts

Dennis and Barbara Williams, MD ’75

"Every opportunity I have had in medicine has been because of UF. That is why Dennis and I are excited about establishing this scholarship. It is time to invest in the students.”

The charitable remainder
unitrust, or CRUT, established
by the Williamses allows the
couple to give a sizeable gift to
scholarships now that impacts
current students, while at the
same time providing them with
income. The remainder of the
asset goes to UF after 20 years.
