Bequests have played an incredibly important role in supporting the University, allowing it to deliver optimum educational and research outcomes for the community, state, national and global priorities. When you leave a gift in your Will you are making an enduring contribution to advance teaching and learning and fast-tracking important discoveries.
I invite you to support this work by considering a bequest to Flinders University.
By making a gift in your Will you will join a community of supporters who also believe in the power of education to transform lives. Together we can ensure that over the course of the next five decades, Flinders continues to remain accessible to students from all backgrounds and means, and attracts the world’s best academics and researchers.
