Giving to education is powerful. A bequest is a lasting legacy that will shape the future of RMIT - benefiting students, the University and the community for years to come.
The Storey family’s gift to RMIT demonstrates the impact a bequest can have. Sir John Storey made one of the most significant bequests in RMIT’s history, in memory of his son John Storey Junior. Over the last 60 years, this bequest has provided for 600 John Storey Junior Memorial Scholarships – and the scholarship program continues to this day.
Making a bequest
A bequest is a gift in your will. Leaving a bequest is a very personal decision and there are a number of things to consider to ensure your bequest suits your personal circumstances and interests.
Gifts may include a portion of an estate, a sum of money or assets such as shares, real estate or artworks.
No matter what form it takes, a bequest to RMIT is a powerful gift that will ensure the University can give more young people the power to transform their lives, communities and the future through education.
How will my gift be used by RMIT?
You may wish to specify how your gift is used by RMIT or leave a bequest for general purposes, enabling the University to fund future needs in an ever-changing, global environment.
Your bequest could:
- Provide scholarships in a particular discipline area or for students from a specific cohort
- Enable the best and brightest to carry out research
- Fund the creation of innovative facilities.
