It is not without good reason that legacies are often called "the greatest gift of all". What could be more selfless and generous than to make a gift for which one cannot be thanked upon receipt? We would be very grateful for your support, and for those choosing to make provision for St Mary’s in their wills during their lifetime, we would aim to keep in touch with you with updates on the work of the University, and occasional invitations to events.
After protecting the interests of family and friends, many choose to remember St Mary’s with a legacy, reflecting their support and affection and their wish for the University to continue to flourish in the future. A legacy can help to ensure that, for generations to come, St Mary’s is able to compete with its peer institutions on all fronts and maintain its status as one of the leading Catholic universities.
Making a bequest for St Mary’s is not a complicated matter, but we would always recommend that you seek professional legal advice before changing your Will. To help in this process, we have listed the main forms of bequest and provided suggested wording to ensure that your wishes are honoured.
