Legacy giving

photoRemembering St John's in your will

Giving through a will is often the easiest and most effective method of supporting St John’s and since the College’s foundation, many Johnians and friends of St John's have donated in this way.

This section of the website will explain the tax advantages of making a gift in a will, help you decide which is the best type of legacy gift for you, and tell you how to let us know about your plans.  It will also explain how we plan to say thank you for your gift during your lifetime.
