Leave a gift in your Will

For more than 500 years, St Catharine’s has benefited from the generosity of Members and friends who have remembered the College in their Will. This support has resulted in substantial and lasting changes visible throughout College, from scholarship and research funds to resources for the Chapel and Library, and the construction of buildings around Main Court.

You can add to this history by leaving your own lasting legacy for the future. All bequests are given to St Catharine’s College free of tax. Leaving a legacy is something anybody can do. A solicitor will advise how to do this and the Development Office are happy to answer any questions about how your gift will be used. Please contact

“I have never thought of myself as someone who becomes attached to institutions, yet I have become very involved with St Catharine’s and feel very affectionately towards it. My relationship with the College – and that means of course with the people in it – has been enormously important to me. I have felt a sense of belonging, and belonging to the College community is like belonging to a family: something one cares about and derives support from.” 

Dr John Thompson, (1971, Emeritus Fellow)
