Leave a bequest

Create a legacy

Leaving a gift in your will ensures a legacy by creating access to education and training for those who need it most. Bequests include:

  • a residual bequest (what is left of your estate once all legacies and costs have been paid)
  • a percentage of an estate
  • a pecuniary bequest (a specific sum)
  • assets such as real estate, shares and/or works of art.

Guidance on bequests

Make a bequest in your own name, or honour someone important in your life by making a bequest in theirs.

No matter what form your bequest takes, we will ensure it's directed to the right area to achieve your intentions. If you are considering leaving a bequest to VU, we encourage you to contact the Advancement Office ([email protected]) so we can provide further guidance on the process. 

The University recommends that you consult your legal adviser in preparing your bequest. However, here is some indicative wording as a guide:

General purpose wording: "I give Victoria University ABN 83 776 954 731 [insert details of gift] for the general purpose of the University."

Specific wording: "I give Victoria University ABN 83 776 954 731 [insert details of gift] for [program area i.e. scholarships, research] in the field of [insert general description of area of interest]"

Workplace giving at VU

Create opportunity

Help our students to reach their potential by removing barriers put up by the costs of travel to and from university, buying textbooks or a computer – or even the rent for a secure home.

Our Creating Opportunity Fund provides the resources to assist as many students as we can. By providing scholarships and financial aid to those in crisis, we can nurture our students and support them to achieve all that they are capable of.

 

How VU staff can help

As a valued VU staff member, your donation to the Creating Opportunity Fund through Workplace Giving will provide meaningful support for some of our most deserving students.
