Making a gift in your Will
Gifts in Wills provide almost one third of philanthropic income to the University each year, playing a vital part in changing lives far into the future.
By remembering the University in your Will, you can give a gift which costs nothing to make now but will advance our world-changing research, learning and teaching for the benefit of generations to come.
Information about making a Will during Covid-19
Making or updating your Will is one of the most important things you can do, making it easier for your family or friends to sort out your affairs and ensuring your estate will be shared according to your wishes.
Completing your Will with your solicitor is still possible within local Covid and social-distancing measures. You don’t need to go to a solicitor’s office - a telephone call or email will start the process. Although physical witnessing may well be possible using social-distancing, new guidance in Scotland, England and Wales allows for your Will to be witnessed by video technology and be legally valid if necessary. Your solicitor will be able to advise in detail.
Do contact us if we can help in any way and stay safe and well.
