From improving lives to making ground-breaking research discoveries, by leaving a gift in your will you are creating a brighter future.

The gift of a lifetime

Today, generous supporters are transforming the lives of vulnerable students and paving the way for research and community developments because of a decision they made, sometimes several years ago, to support QUT in their will.

We hope you too will consider this fulfilling means of making a life-changing difference.

Becoming a donor

'For us, it is seeing the individual students we support through the Learning Potential Fund succeed that has inspired us to leave a gift to QUT in our will.

Helping these students overcome tough circumstances to stay at QUT and build a new future for themselves is wonderful. To know that our gift will help achieve this in perpetuity is a source of great joy.'

Ray and Penny Weekes, QUT Learning Potential Fund donors and bequestors
