Creating a lasting legacy – the next step

Leaving a bequest requires careful deliberation as your decision will provide you with an opportunity to provide something powerful which will affect generations to come.  By making a bequest to Charles Sturt University, you can create a legacy and make an enduring contribution to the advancement of teaching, research and learning. The gift can honour you, your family or someone close to you, for generations to come.

Before making a bequest, we recommend that you speak to your solicitor, legal professional or trustee to help ensure you have a valid Will that achieves what you intend.  For those with an existing Will, you will need to have your legal professional add a codicil to your present Will outlining your donation to Charles Sturt University.

In order to ensure that your planned giving has impact for many years to come, we suggest that a bequest is worded in a way that allows for institutional and societal changes.  What appears simple and unambiguous today may not make the same sense as time progresses. Your legal professional will be able to assist you through this process.

Every gift we receive makes a difference to our University and to future generations of students. If you choose to remember Charles Sturt University in your Will, please accept our sincere thanks for your foresight and generosity.
