By choosing to support St Andrews in your will, you can help to ensure the future of the University no matter what challenges lie ahead.
A gift of a legacy to St Andrews is tax-free in most instances and may reduce any inheritance tax burden on your estate from 40% to 36%.
The University of St Andrews is a registered charity in Scotland (NO SC013532), regulated by the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator.
A member of our team would welcome the opportunity to discuss your intentions to ensure that the University will be able to honour your wishes. We recommend you consult a solicitor to draft your will. He/she should be able to adapt the following form of words to suit your needs:
‘I give to the University Court of the University of St Andrews (Scottish Charity Number SC013532), Fife, Scotland the sum of [in words] OR a [in words] percentage share of the residue of my estate OR my [detail your specific item or items] to be used for the general purposes of the University OR to be used for [detail the specific purposes you have] and I declare that the receipt of the Quaestor or other officer authorised by the Principal of the said University shall be a full and sufficient discharge to my Executors and Trustees’.
Add to your existing will
