Support Loughborough with a gift in your Will

When you choose to remember your time at Loughborough by leaving a gift in your will, you are becoming part of the Loughborough story for generations to come.

Whether you were a student here, enjoyed a rewarding career here, or like so many people simply wish to support the life-changing research, educational opportunities, ethos and vision of Loughborough – by leaving a legacy you can make a lasting impact on others long after you are gone.

Leaving a legacy

We are delighted that you are considering making a gift through your Will. If you would like us to send you further information about legacies to consider in your own time, please contact us and we will send you our legacy brochure, guidance on suggested wording, a codicil form and a declaration of intent form in the post or you can download it now.

Sharing your intentions with us

We would be grateful if you could let us know about your intended gift, especially if you want your donation to be used for a specific purpose at the University, in order to check that we will be able to fulfil your wishes in the future.

To discuss your gift, please contact Rachel Third, Head of Philanthropy. Alternatively, you can complete and return a ‘Declaration of intent’ form to let us know of your wishes and help us to thank you appropriately. This form is not a legally binding document and it does not commit you to any particular cause of action. Please be assured it will not limit your freedom to change your mind at any time. Any information you give to Loughborough regarding your will or intentions is strictly private and confidential.

The Thompson Circle

Annie Thompson was the first person to leave a legacy to Loughborough, in 1935. Her gift helped to provide scholarships to those who wanted to study at Loughborough but who might not have had the financial means to do so.

The Thompson Circle, named in honour of Annie’s gift, was established to thank our many alumni and friends who intend to leave a gift to Loughborough in their Will, and to inspire others to do the same. As a member of the Thompson Circle, we recognise that you are a close friend to the University and invite you to join us at exclusive events and keep you up to date on the impact of donations on student life and research at Loughborough.
