Giving

Thirty years of impact

Our Carlyle Circle was formed in 1990 to bring together and thank everyone who pledges to leave a legacy to the University of Edinburgh. To celebrate the Carlyle Circle's 30th anniversary we want to highlight the many ways legacy giving has helped support the University's global and local impact.
