Let your life and passion inspire researchers and students for generations to come by leaving a charitable bequest in your will.
Your bequest can go towards an area that is close to your heart. The breadth of research and subject areas at the University of Sydney is so vast, so whatever you are passionate about – helping animals, supporting talented students or enabling life-changing research – you can direct your gift to the area that means the most to you.
While you might not be in the position to give in your lifetime, bequests are a wonderful way to leave a future gift in memory of yourself or a loved one. A bequest can take a number of forms, and can be directed to a specific or general purpose. Examples include:
Creating your will is a very personal experience, so it's important to us to help you in any way possible so you can honour yourself, your family or someone close to you, for generations to come.
If you're intending to include the University in your will, or already have, we'd love to know so we can thank you and invite you to join the Challis Bequest Society. This allows us to honour and celebrate your generosity with exclusive events, behind-the-scene tours and updates on our latest discoveries. But if you'd like, you can choose to remain anonymous.
We'd love to help you turn your passion into your legacy. If you know exactly how you'd like include the University in your will, we can provide you with the correct wording.
But if you'd like to know more information about a specific area, or aren't sure what area you'd like to support, we'd like to invite you on campus, or where possible we can arrange to visit you, and talk over a cup of tea or coffee.
Please contact our Planned Giving team on +61 2 8019 7979 or firstname.lastname@example.org and we can assist you. We look forward to talking with you.
You can read more about how bequests are transforming the University in the latest Challis Bequest Society newsletter.
I elected to leave a bequest to the University because their focus is on evidence‑based veterinary training to ensure world‑class veterinary professionals.
What we’re looking to do is provide opportunities for someone else to do what we’ve done.
