Leave a legacy

You are viewing: Why legacy giving matters

A legacy gift is a very important and personal decision that can go a long way at SOAS whether that's scholarships, academic research or projects such as the maintenance of the library.

Why legacy giving matters

A gift in your will can help us continue to educate and train future generations to become critical thinkers, able to investigate the world and shape it for the better.

SOAS is an exempt charity, which means that any gift left to us in your will is free of UK inheritance tax.

If you have any questions or would like to speak to somebody confidentially about your intentions, please contact Harris Laspas, our Legacy Manager, on philanthropy@soas.ac.uk.

US-based donors

US-based donors can support important causes that help bring important educational opportunities to high-achieving students and to support the world-renowned academics as tax-efficient gifts.
