Support tomorrow’s talent

Do you want to give back to society and support research and teaching in your will? You can make a real difference with a legacy gifted to the University of Basel. You decide how your legacy benefits the university. We will be happy to advise you in deciding on a suitable contribution and guarantee that your last will and testament will be carried out faithfully.

Settle your estate legally and securely

Our partner organization DeinAdieu.ch will help you prepare a will for your personal situation that includes the University of Basel with no obligation and free of charge.


The process consists of the following necessary steps:

  • Make a list of your heirs (compulsory portion)
  • Determine who will receive what part of your estate
  • Make a handwritten copy of the document
  • Deposit your handwritten will at a secure location (for example, with a confidant, attorney or the municipality)


Personalized advice

Caroline Mattingley-Scott, Head of Fundraising, will be happy to schedule a personal meeting with you to advise you on estate planning.

We treat all communications in the strictest confidence.
