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)
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.
