Leaving a legacy


The IET is very fortunate to have been trusted by members to share the joy that their profession has given them with others through a gift in their will.

By leaving a legacy to the IET you too can help to ensure, for example, that

  • apprentices and students are supported through their studies
  • children will experience the excitement of engineering opening their eyes to a great career
  • the IET can continue to innovate and respond to an ever-changing landscape

Every gift in every Will makes a difference whether it is a small percentage or a modest sum of money.


What do I say in my Will if I want to leave the IET a gift in my Will?

If you are kindly considering leaving us a legacy then we recommend that you take professional advice to ensure the legacy meets your personal circumstances.

These are the details you will need to tell the solicitor:

Institution of Engineering and Technology, Michael Faraday House, Six Hills Way, Stevenage, Herts SG1 2AY. Registered charity number 211014 (England and Wales) and SC038698 (Scotland)

Tax benefits

Because the IET is a charity, this gift can have tax advantages. It is likely that for every £1,000 you leave the IET, £400 inheritance tax will be saved – but please take professional advice.

Would you like your gift used for a specific purpose?

Legacies left to the IET will be carefully used to further priority areas of work including supporting students, inspiring children and enhancing learning opportunities and professional development.

We appreciate all gifts and use them for the most urgent and beneficial purposes. If you have a vision of how you would like your gift used please contact Bhavini Bhatt



A will is very personal, and we quite understand if you prefer to keep your intentions private. However, if you do wish to let us know about a legacy to IET we will be able to thank you personally and keep you informed about the impact your gift could make.


Finally, thank you and we will not forget your generosity!

Every gift will be remembered in Savoy Place. The IET is working to engineer a better world. Your legacy will bring that vision closer.

Please download the IET Legacy Pack for further information, or contact us.

We are grateful to members and their families whose legacies we have received. Through their thoughtful generosity students and researchers have received new scholarships and prizes and they have enabled innovation by underpinning the work of the IET.  Thank you.
