Leave a gift in your Will

Shaping the future

Leaving a gift in your Will is just one of the ways you can ensure your legacy lives on into the future.

Bequests can help support the University's world-renowned research as well as provide an equitable learning environment for all our scholars.

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.

Your legacy can be bequeathed to the University through your Will and can be:

  • a financial contribution of any amount
  • a gift-in-kind (a non-monetary donation such as art, books, equipment etc.)
  • a proportion of your estate or the residue of it after other distributions have been made.

It's your dream. It's your choice.

The University of Newcastle takes your dream seriously. Whatever support you would like to give, we can provide advice on how to design your gift in a way that best reflects your wishes. The University of Newcastle will also ensure that you and your donation are appropriately recognised.
