A Gift in your Will to the University of Sheffield

A legacy gift is often the most significant gift a person ever makes. Whatever you want to achieve – supporting higher education or research, developing Sheffield’s campus, helping your department or our students directly – your legacy gift will be a way to continue your positive influence on progress.

We are an exempt charity, which means that any sum left to the University in a Will is free of tax. This is true whether you leave your gift unrestricted, or whether you express a wish for your gift to be used for a particular purpose.

We will be happy to talk to you about any ideas you have, or any areas of the University that are of particular interest to you.

Including a gift of any size in your Will is easy to do, and will give you the opportunity to help shape the future of a great University.
