Gifts in Will
As the Robert Gordon University Foundation is a registered charity a gift in your will is tax exempt and in most cases will mean that any tax paid on an estate will be reduced. Whilst all discussions concerning your will should be with between you and your solicitor we would be delighted to hear from you if you are interested in donating to the University through your will.
Giving from the USA
Alumni and friends based in the USA who would like to make a donation to support RGU are directed to do so through the British Schools and Universities Foundation Inc. This will ensure that the donor qualifies for the appropriate US tax deductions on their gift.
