Supporting education or research by leaving a gift in your Will (a bequest) is an incredible way to leave a legacy and create change beyond your lifetime.
You don't need to be wealthy to leave a bequest. Any amount will make an impact on the lives of our students and the work of our researchers.
Simple ways to leave a bequest in your Will
How to support education or research
A bequest can be for an unrestricted purpose at the University, or you can specify the area of education or research that you would like to support — see below for What can I support?
To honour a loved one, you can donate in their name or your own.
The support from a bequest can be provided as once-off funding or spread across a number of years. Bequests over $100,000 can be endowed, so that funding for a specific purpose - such as an annual scholarship - can continue in perpetuity, using the annual interest generated by the investment.
“It was as we tried to make some sense of our loss that we as a family decided to make a bequest to Flinders University in Rachael’s name.”
Eric and Joan Kirkham’s bequest — part proceeds of their estate — will fund the annual Rachael Kirkham Speech Pathology Scholarship at Flinders University.
