Leaving a Legacy

Thanks for visiting the Oral Roberts University stewardship and estate planning site! It is our personal prayer and passion that this be a tangible ministry in your life.

We are told that a staggering 70% of Americans do not have a current will. Wow! The ramifications of this on children, surviving spouses, and on taxes and fees is immeasurable.

There are probably many reasons for this. Fear of dying, procrastination, confusion about the estate planning process, the cost of creating a will…and more.

We, at Oral Roberts University, want to provide some "layman friendly" estate planning information that can enable you to protect your family and be a wise steward of what He has entrusted you with.

We are always available to discuss any aspect of planned giving or estate planning. For your privacy, we have made special arrangements for you to explore estate planning and planned giving strategies with the help of an independent group called PhilanthroCorp, a nationally known charitable planning firm that works exclusively in the areas of estate and gift planning.

We have partnered with PhilanthroCorp in this important endeavor and in most cases there is no cost for their services. Throughout the pages there are contact forms where you may select whom you wish to respond to your request, ORU or PhilanthroCorp.

So, grab a cup of coffee or tea, kick off your shoes and browse around. If you just want to get down to business, you can click on the Estate Plan Organizer on any page and walk yourself through a tutorial/data gathering process. At the end, you can print it at home or ask for help. All of the information you log in is confidential. The Estate Plan Organizer does not ask for social security numbers or bank account numbers. No one will see your entries unless you submit at the end and ask for help.

In that case, we will be in touch to serve you in any way they can.

So, be blessed and make yourself at home!
