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? It is for this reason that we have created the 1850 Society, a vehicle which allows us to thank those choosing to make provision for St Mary’s in their wills during their lifetime. For more details, of 1850 Society click here.
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.
