Bringing legacy to life

How to amend your Will

Contribute to our world-leading research

Legacies are very important to BU and they support our work in lots of ways – from new buildings and facilities, to academic research and student hardship. Projects currently being undertaken include improving outcomes for hip replacement patients and conserving vulnerable wildlife in Indonesia. BU will receive 100% of any gift and we are grateful for every penny.

We encourage donors to think carefully about their legacy and not to be too specific when making their Will, as some of our current exciting projects might have come to an end by the time we receive their gift.

If you are interested in leaving a legacy to BU, we would be delighted to provide you with more information about any aspect of our work and all contact will be treated in the strictest confidence. Please contact Ian Wadley, Head of Fundraising, at iwadley@bournemouth.ac.uk for a private discussion.
