Choosing a legacy that suits you
There are five standard types of legacy with which you can support the University of York.
This gift has the advantage of providing for your family first and then benefitting the University. It involves leaving your assets to trustees so that they beneficiaries can enjoy the benefits during their lifetime with the whole or a portion reverting to the University on their death.
A gift which comprises all or part of the net remainder of your estate once all other legacies, debts and fees have been met. This is a particularly simple gift as you neither have to quantify the sum nor worry about inflation when writing your will.
This provides for the eventuality that if one of your named beneficiaries does not survive you, that part of your estate will be left to the University.
Specific or non-money legacy:
If you choose, to you may donate particular items such as property, stocks and shares, works of art or books. Please consult the University in advance.
You choose to leave a specified sum of money to the University.
However you choose to support us, your gift will help secure the future for the University of York as a dynamic and thriving institution.
