Since the foundation in the sixteenth century, the bequests of generous and far-sighted individuals have been crucial to the college's development—this is one of the many ways in which Old Members and Friends can make a contribution to the future of Trinity.
At a time of declining public funding, such help is even more important if we are to maintain the highest standards of teaching and research and provide the facilities in which our students can develop and flourish. As the focus of our financial priority changes, a bequest can allow money to be channelled to the areas of greatest need. Alternatively, you may specify a wish to support a particular interest or chosen area.
We would like to thank our benefactors during their lifetimes and we have therefore created the William Pitt Society to recognise all those people who have included Trinity in their Will. Special events are held for members of the society, including regular lunches.
Further information about the benefits and making of bequests to Trinity can be found in the guides below and for further details or guidance please contact Sue Broers.
