Legacy giving

Become a part of our 1966 Society by pledging a legacy in your Will.

Established to recognise those who pledge to leave a gift in their Will, our 1966 Society takes its name from when the University received its Royal Charter. For over 50 years, gifts of all sizes from our generous alumni and friends have been making a tremendous impact at Bath.

When pledging a legacy, you can decide where your support goes – whether that’s towards the University as a whole, or an aspect that means the most to you.

What would you like to achieve?

By leaving a gift of any size to the University of Bath in your Will, you know that you’ll be having a positive impact on generations to come.

Dr Aki Salo has pledged a legacy to further research in our Department for Health:

“It’s always good to plan for the future. Anyone could leave a small or larger gift to benefit future students.”

Barbara Nunn (BSc Mathematics 1978) has pledged a legacy to support undergraduate scholarships:

“I’d like my legacy to help support students towards success and personal development during their time at university and beyond.”

Professor Richard Mawditt OBE (MSc Business Administration 1983; Hon LLD 2008) has pledged a legacy to the School of Management:

“It has been a privilege and pleasure to have been associated with the School of Management over the years in so many roles, and good fortune to all who sail in her for many successful years to come.”

Inspiring new generations

Supporting students for years to come.

Mechanical Engineering students at work.

From building a human-powered aircraft to compete in the Icarus Cup, to developing ways of reusing coffee grounds, this year six students from our Faculty of Engineering & Design undertook projects, internships and development opportunities that would otherwise have been unachievable.

These were made possible by grants from the Arthur Clements Fund, established in 2019 by a generous gift of £250,000 from the estate of the late engineer Arthur Clements CBE (1926 – 2016).

Arthur was an entrepreneur who left school aged 14 and went on to become chairman of SSS Gears Limited. His children, Nicholas Clements and Caroline Egleston, chose the Faculty of Engineering & Design as the area where their father’s wishes to encourage the art of mechanical engineering and to support young engineers would be most fittingly fulfilled.

His legacy is invested in the University’s Endowment Fund and the annual income derived from this investment will be used to support and inspire students for generations to come.
