Your part in a brighter future

Martin EvansCardiff University is the home of explorers and visionaries. People come here to understand the world around them. Our students and researchers alike are united by a desire to bring to light new ways of thinking, to share ideas and inspire others, to explore unfamiliar territory and to discover a brighter future. But we cannot do it without the support of people like you.

In addition to pure understanding, there are also practical outcomes. Would you like to help us find the cure for cancer?  An effective treatment for Alzheimer's and other neurological diseases? A sustainable way for future generations to live?

If these issues matter to you, please consider making a gift to Cardiff University in your will. You will be investing in a future we can only dream of, as we are committed to transforming the lives of people worldwide through our groundbreaking research and playing a major role in teaching upcoming generations of students.

It is an inspiring thought that you could support Cardiff University far into the future by remembering us in your will.

I would like to give you my personal and heartfelt thanks for your commitment to Cardiff University, and hope you will join me today in considering a gift to the University in your will.


Professor Sir Martin Evans FRS

President of Cardiff University
Nobel Prize Winner for Medicine 2007

Why give through your will?Medical_students

"I have chosen to support Cardiff University in my will because I have tremendous affection for Cardiff and remember, with considerable pleasure, the years I spent there as a medical student and a doctor. I want to improve awareness of the importance of medical ethics, particularly in future doctors, and felt that endowing a prize in medical ethics for undergraduate medical students was the most effective way of doing this." (Dr David Roberts, Medicine, 1966)
