Bequests

Bequests

A bequest provides the chance to leave a positive footprint for your family and friends. It ensures that you have a lasting impact on your community. A bequest to the University of Wollongong helps young minds rethink assumptions; creates medical and health solutions that benefit everyone; gives students a hopeful future.

Create a powerful and lasting reminder of your life and your values by leaving a gift in your Will. Well beyond your lifetime, your gift will have a positive impact on the well-being of future generations.

The 2051 Bequest Brochure provides guidelines for making your bequest to UOW, however, you should always consult your solicitor or legal advisor when preparing or making changes to your Will.

Nursing the greatest gift of all

winnfrid bullotWinifrid Bullot Smith devoted
her life to nursing and nurse
education, leaving a legacy that will
live on through a scholarship at
the University of Wollongong.
Ms Smith, who died in 2009
aged 87 was one of the driving
forces behind the
establishment of the state’s first
School of Nursing to be located
at a tertiary education institution. The
school opened in 1979 at the
Wollongong Institute of
Education (which merged with
UOW two years later).
Ms Smith left the University
$400,000 from her estate, to be
used for nursing scholarships.
