Planned Giving

Leaving a legacy to Linacre is a way to make a meaningful contribution that allows the next generation of students to thrive in our College, without compromising your current finances. A gift in your will can support any aspect of College life with which you have a particular affinity. 

There are types of legacy gifts that allow you to put your family first while still making a provision for Linacre and other causes close to your heart. You may decide to leave a fixed sum to the College, a percentage of your estate, or the residue that remains when you have provided for your loved ones. 

If you are planning on remembering Linacre in your will, the College’s Head of Alumni Relations and Development, Lisa Smårs would be delighted to have an informal chat with you, providing any guidance you may need and the wording to share with your solicitor or family members. For further information, please contact or call 01865 271673. All discussions are non-binding and are treated as confidential. 

In recognition of our supporters, all alumni and friends of the College who choose to leave a legacy to Linacre are invited become members of The Bamborough Circle. It is our way of extending our heartfelt thanks and each year we organise an event to show our appreciation to our Bamborough Circle members.
