Types of bequests
There are many ways in which you can leave a bequest to Macquarie University.
You can leave a percentage of your estate, a fixed amount or the residue of your estate.
Alternatively, bequests can be in the form of:
- real estate
- art works
- rare collections
- or other support
We can work with you to manage your bequest, whether you have a specific purpose in mind or choose to leave an unrestricted bequest. If you wish to make a bequest for a specific purpose, the University can help you draft a Statement of Intention for your signature. The Statement will acknowledge your gift and ensure that we share your understanding of the terms of your bequest.
A bequest makes a difference
Following a bequest from Doris Wallent, each year two scholarships are awarded to second year mathematics students.
"I was awarded the Doris Wallent Scholarship for Mathematics. It was a wonderful surprise and has given me the encouragement to pursue mathematics as my major at Macquarie. Receiving this scholarship has increased my confidence in my studies and I am now undertaking postgraduate studies in mathematics with a view to a career in this field. I am grateful for the recognition and the financial assistance this award has provided."
