Leaving a legacy is often the most significant gift that a person ever makes, yet it is one of the simplest and most flexible ways of giving.
When you pledge a legacy to Cranfield you know that you are making a positive impact and helping support us in our mission to develop leaders in technology and management. It is an opportunity to fund ground-breaking research, support the future of bright and talented students, enhance the Cranfield campus or contribute to an endowment fund that will help your gift go further. And your gift doesn’t have to be a large one to make a difference.
Any legacy gift is deeply appreciated, and when you leave a legacy gift to Cranfield you and your family can be reassured that your priorities will be looked after by people who share and understand your values. You can also write your will to ensure that your loved ones are taken care of before any donation to Cranfield is committed.
Leaving a legacy costs you nothing today, but it leaves a lasting impression
It honours your Cranfield education and experience and inspires future generations of Cranfield students. Plus as an exempt charity, any gift you leave to Cranfield in your will is tax-free irrespective of your wishes for how your gift is to be used.
The Sue White Fund for Africa provides funding to enable students to study for a PhD at Cranfield University in a topic related to Professor White’s research. The fund is financed by a generous donation to the University made by Professor White through her estate.
Tshephang (Tshepi) Tumoyagae is one of the PhD students to be supported by the Sue White Fund for Africa. Her project, 'Increase of Water Supply from Storm Water Harvesting and Artificial Recharge in Botswana', aims to identify all available sources of water to increase water supply and to artificially recharge underground water resources. Current resources are diminishing as a result of drought and increased demand. Existing data and relevant technologies will be reviewed and investigated. It is expected that the project findings may have direct relevance to the national water security strategy, and will assist in improving water security within Botswana.
