Leave a legacy

One of the key ways generous supporters have chosen to support the University over the years is by leaving a legacy in their Will. These bequests play a vital part in sustaining the work of the University into the future, and we consider them the highest honour we can receive as an institution.

If you are considering supporting the University in this way, please read our brochure below for more information. Every such contribution helps to ensure that the University of Stirling can carry on the path to improving lives and communities through world-class research and education.

Please contact the Director for Advancement for a confidential discussion or to request a legacy brochure at

Inheritance Tax: the basics

The standard Inheritance Tax rate is 40%. It is payable on estates of over £325,000 (on the part of your estate that is above the threshold) unless you leave everything to your spouse or civil partner, a charity or amateur or community sports club. If you give away your home to your children (including adopted, foster or stepchildren) or grandchildren, your threshold will increase to £425,000. Find out more about Inheritance Tax.
