The following wording is sufficient to make your intentions known but, in all cases, we recommend that you consult a solicitor or professional advisor in the drafting or amending of your will.
I give to ASTON UNIVERSITY the sum of £___________ / __________________ (in figures and in words)...
I give to ASTON UNIVERSITY all (or a percentage or share) of my residuary estate...
...free from all taxes and duties, to be applied to the general purposes (or your preferred area) of the said University. I declare that the receipt of an authorised officer for the time being of the University shall be good and sufficient discharge to my Executors.
The above examples can be adapted to specific and reversionary gifts to suit your particular needs and wishes and your professional advisor will be able to draft this for you.
If you already have a will and want to make changes to include Aston University, you can easily do this by completing a codicil and storing the new instructions with your will.
