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 legacy please contact Thomas Kelly.
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!
