Leaving a gift in your will
Making a will is one of the most important things you will ever do.
By including a gift to the University in your will, you can help us to nurture people, generate ideas and make discoveries which will change the world for the better.
Your gift could make a huge difference to the lives of our students or push forward research in an area close to your heart.
With your help, we can shape a better future

Sue Heward (History 1975)
“We decided we wanted to help students less fortunate than ourselves.”
Roy Ludlow (French 1967)
“I hope to support young people who, in turn, by virtue of their education, will be in a position to support others.”
Katharine Salmon (French and Italian 1995; MA 1997)
“I wanted to leave a legacy to Leeds, especially if I can help make life better for students in generations to come.”
Emma Atkinson (Geological Sciences 1997)
“I read about the Brotherton Circle and the legacies which have been left to the University in the past and thought ‘what a brilliant idea’.”
Dr Moses Batwala (Medicine 2000)
“I want to do all I can to encourage future medics to study at Leeds.”
Peter Cheney (Bacteriology and Biochemistry 1969)
“We wanted our wealth to go the place it could do the most good, and we wanted to leave something behind after we’re gone that we could feel proud of.”
