Pledging to bring out potential
Ms Yvonne Hooper, alumnus, former staff member, and benefactor
"I want to be remembered by my relationships with my students. That is why my bequest will support students, especially those in the fields of drama and creative industries, to be the best they can."
When you remember QUT in your will, you are supporting education, research and the community for future generations.
Your gift, whether large or small, will make a powerful, lasting difference to the community by supporting education opportunities for students, enabling groundbreaking research and creating awareness of issues with real-world impact.
We are always delighted to be involved with visionary people who are considering making a real commitment to the community's future. Everyone who pledges such a gift is invited to become a member of the QUT Bequest Benefactor Society.
After you have provided for your loved ones, please consider a gift to QUT in your will.
If you are considering updating your will or would like to know more about making a bequest to QUT, please contact our Senior Development Officer (Donor Relations and Bequests).
