Legacy Giving


A legacy is your gift to future generations. The impact of your generosity will be felt in years to come by promising students, the leaders and change-makers of tomorrow.

It will assist in critical research that seeks solutions to challenges that we, and future generations, face. It will help attract the finest academics and deliver the high quality educational experience that is synonymous with the National University of Singapore (NUS).

You can designate how you want your legacy to be used or leave it unrestricted so that NUS has the flexibility to meet the needs of a changing world.

By letting us know of your intention to make a legacy gift, you give us the opportunity to understand your wishes and plan how to best implement them. We would also like to involve you in University activities that are close to your heart. This dialogue does not commit you to a certain course of action or limit your freedom to change your plan.



You can choose to support the University as a whole or the aspect of University life with which you have the greatest affinity.

Here are three ways you can make a legacy gift:

Charitable Bequests

Since a charitable bequest can take many forms, you have considerable flexibility. You can leave a specific asset, a specific sum of money, a percentage of your estate or what remains of your estate after you have provided for other beneficiaries.

You can designate how you want your bequest to be used or leave it unrestricted so that the University may direct the funds to where it is most needed at the time. Most importantly, you remain in complete control of the bequest process and can change any bequest provision during your lifetime.

CPF Monies

You can nominate NUS as a beneficiary of your CPF monies using a CPF nomination form. Further information and the nomination form can be obtained from the CPF Board Office or the CPF website at www.cpf.gov.sg.

Insurance Policies

You can designate NUS as the beneficiary of your insurance policy when the policy is no longer important to you or your family’s financial security. Alternatively, you can purchase an insurance policy and name NUS as both the owner and the beneficiary.

If you would like to know more about making a legacy gift to the University, please email legacygift@nus.edu.sg or call +65 6516-8000
