Ways to Give

There are many ways you can donate to QMU whether it be a single gift, a regular direct debit or perhaps you have considered remembering us in your will.

If you are interested in a confidential conversation with a member of the Development Team regarding philanthropic giving, or would like further information about projects, priorities or student support, please contact us using the box in the right hand side of this page.

Donate Online

We are able to accept online donations. Here you can find information on the various funds that you can support. By the information on each fund, you will find an online giving option.

Make a Regular Gift

A regular gift ensures your donation has the greatest possible impact because it enables us to plan effectively. You can choose the amount you wish to give and the frequency.

Please download our form to make a regular gift.


Leaving a legacy gift is one way you can act today to support QMU and future generations of students. We are grateful that you are considering a gift to QMU in your will.

As a registered charity (number SC002750), a legacy to Queen Margaret University in most instances is tax free and will reduce any inheritance tax burden on your estate.

We recommend that you also seek advice from a solicitor in order to make a will or add a simple codicil to your will.

We would like to thank you personally for your support, so please let us know if you have, or intend to, remember us in your will. For further information on leaving a legacies please contact Thomas Kelly. Please use the contact box on the right hand corner of this page.

Gift Aid

If you are a UK tax payer, you can make every £1 you give - or have given - worth 25p more, just by telling us. This is because, if you make a Gift Aid Declaration when donating to the University, HM Revenue and Customs will increase your gift to us by 25p for every £1 you give. This means that you can make an even bigger difference at no extra cost to you!

Gift Acceptance Policy

QMU is deeply grateful to all donors for their generous support towards the University and is dedicated to treating donors with the highest level of care and respect. As such we have established the QMU Gift Acceptance Policy which sets out the principles that the University will follow when seeking and accepting gifts from individuals, charitable trusts and corporate bodies. It also sets out the commitments that it makes to donors and prospective donors.

We respect donors’ rights to privacy and fully comply with the Data Protection Act of 1998.
