Your legacy questions answered

We've answered some commonly-asked legacy questions below to help you in your decision-making. If you have a question that isn't listed here, please give us a call and we will be happy to help.


Q: How do I leave a legacy to IntoUniversity in my Will?

A: If you don’t yet have a Will, it’s quick and fairly inexpensive to draft one with your solicitor. You'll find some useful guidance on making a Will here. If you have a Will, you can ask your solicitor to add a codicil to the Will in order to add your gift.


Q: What kind of legacy can I leave?

A: There are two main types of legacy gifts: you can choose to leave a specific amount of money (a pecuniary legacy), or you might choose to leave a percentage of your estate (a residuary legacy). The benefit of a residuary legacy is that it will not lose value over time.


Q: Do you have an example of appropriate wording I can use to leave my gift?

A: Yes – please click here to download our example codicil wording. You might want to take this along to your meeting with your solicitor or professional adviser.


Q: Can I speak to someone at IntoUniversity about my legacy?

A: Yes, of course. We would be delighted to speak to you about your legacy to IntoUniversity. Please call us on 020 7243 0242. You can also email, or write to us at IntoUniversity Head Office, 95 Sirdar Road, London, W11 4EQ.


Q: Do I have to tell IntoUniversity that I have left a legacy to the charity?

A: No – it is absolutely up to you whether you inform us of your legacy. We know that making your Will is a very private matter. We would however love to hear from you if you have left us a legacy so that we can thank you properly and show you some of the things we hope to do with your gift.


Q: Can I avoid inheritance tax by leaving a gift to IntoUniversity?

A: A gift left to IntoUniversity in your Will won’t count towards the value of your estate. You can therefore reduce or eliminate inheritance tax by leaving a legacy. To find out more visit the inheritance tax pages on the website.
