Leaving a gift in your will


The University of Oxford's charitable status means that the value of any gift made to the Museum in your will is deducted before inheritance tax.

If you are interested in making a legacy in favour of a particular area of the Museum's work or wish to leave an object to collections, we would be happy to discuss your wishes with you.

We recommend that you speak to a solicitor for personal and confidential up-to-date advice tailored to your needs. They will ensure your intentions are clearly expressed and legally valid, and will be able to advise you on any tax benefits in relation to your gift.

If you have already included the Oxford University Museum of Natural History in your will, please let us know so we can thank you and keep you involved and informed through news and events.
