Leaving a gift in your Will is simple

A donation to St Edmund’s in your Will can help us to flourish far into the future by enabling the College to promote scholarship and research, to support students and to develop and maintain its buildings.  For many people, a gift in their Will is a good way to make a significant and lasting contribution.  It may cost nothing in your lifetime, yet provide much satisfaction and peace of mind. There is an opportunity to make a real difference, even for those with current financial commitments.

It is important that the correct wording is used when a gift is made to ensure that your wishes are carried out. We recommend having a solicitor give you advice.

For taxpayers in the UK, and several other countries, a gift in your Will can have tax benefits. Ask your solicitor or accountant, or go to this page to find out more.

A gift can be directed towards any area of College life you wish. To enable the College to respond to changing needs in years to come, contributions marked ‘for general purposes’ are most useful.

If you inform us of your intention to leave us a gift in your Will, you’ll join The Edmond Nolan Society, unless you prefer not to.

If you wish to discuss your intentions or the possibility of leaving a legacy to the College please contact the Development Office.
