Legacy giving

Legacies: making a lasting mark

When Quintin Hogg founded the Polytechnic in 1882, now the University of Westminster, he created a legacy which would have a major impact on education across the centuries: that of offering opportunity to those who have the aspirations and ability to learn and to put their learning into practice, whatever their background.

Leaving a legacy is one of the easiest ways of making a gift to your university. It is an enduring and fulfilling way to support the University of Westminster and remember the time you spent here.

It is an ideal way to give a gift that might not be possible during your lifetime but that will make a lasting positive impact on future generations of Westminster students. You can direct your gift towards an area of the University’s work you wish to support in particular.

Did you know that by making a legacy gift to the University you can help minimise your inheritance tax?

A gift to the University is tax free and can reduce the tax you pay on your entire estate.
