Leave a gift in your will
A legacy gift is one of the most personal gifts you can make and a way you can leave your mark. After you have remembered your loved ones, leaving a gift to the University of Leicester ensures that the University you feel passionate about can continue to thrive long into the future.
How legacies make a difference
Choosing to support the University's Greatest Need Fund ensures that you will support the University’s top priority, and is a popular option. You can, of course, support a particular area that you are passionate about, such as Student Support, Research Excellence, an academic area of interest, medical research, or our Attenborough Arts Centre.
Giving part of your estate to charity through a legacy can be very tax effective, reducing any inheritance tax liabilities. We recommend that you seek legal advice in order to maximise the gifts you leave for your loved ones and the causes you wish to support.
Large or small, your gift matters and is greatly valued by the University community - if you would like to tell us about your intentions, please complete this form.
