Leave a gift in your will

Giving is about making a real, tangible impact in the world

Now, more than ever, the world needs education and research to solve our most pressing challenges. Leaving a bequest to the University of Newcastle could fund life-changing research that touches the lives of many. It could put education within reach for those who struggle to have access to it. Or it could help provide state-of-the-art teaching, learning and research facilities, or fund many other university projects.

Since the University was established, many people have chosen to contribute something new to the world by leaving a bequest to the University of Newcastle. We are grateful to everyone one of them - remarkable people whose generous gifts have had a lasting impact.

My education has been so important to me on the path I have taken in my own life, so giving money to the University of Newcastle makes sense to me. And it links me to my interests – the environment, engineering and medicine.

Roy Palmer, supporter

Leaving a gift in your will is not simply a chance to give, it is your chance to create something new, something that lasts. It could be life-giving or life-changing. Either way, it will leave a never-ending trail of good.
