The University of Plymouth is creating an impact in world-class research. We're making a difference and what we do here matters.

Your donations help us build a bright future and create a lasting legacy while supporting student talent and ensuring our students benefit from a University experience that will enhance their lives forever.

You can give to our University in two ways - either by volunteering some of your time or by giving a financial gift. Both are hugely important to the University and we’re delighted to work with you to find a way to give which suits your circumstances.

Leave a legacy

A legacy is a gift made to charity through your will. Leaving a legacy to the University of Plymouth is one of the greatest gifts we can receive, whether it's a sum of money, part of your estate or a named item.

Gifts through legacies make so much possible at the University. Ever since the founding of the University in 1862, gifts in Wills have provided a source of vital funds – supporting students, medical research, and the very buildings themselves.

If you'd like more information about leaving a gift in your will, please read our legacy pack, visit our legacy giving page, or email giving@plymouth.ac.uk.
