How can a Legacy gift help?

Studying at Clare Hall has enabled generations of students, from all backgrounds, to realize their full potential and to study at Cambridge.  We believe in the education of future generations, however, the current situation where Clare Hall subsidises the costs of its students is not viable in the long term. 

The area of College life that your legacy supports is of course up to you; however because legacies are realized over the longer term, the best way to help is to leave a gift to the general endowment.  A healthy endowment is the best way to future proof the College, and empower it to tackle whatever challenges it faces.

Your support will help the College to maintain its excellence in tutorial support and pastoral care. Changes in higher education funding mean that it is essential that funds are available for bursaries and scholarships, to ensure that no talented graduate is prevented from studying because of financial hardship. 

Looking into the future, Clare Hall must meet the needs and expectations of students and Visiting Fellows.  The experience at Clare Hall is not just about the academic education, it is also about the rich cultural, social and sporting life, and having the opportunities to join in with others in various activities, which constitute a flourishing College life. 

Your charitable support, combined with the College’s investments, can help us achieve these goals.

If you would prefer your gift to be directed to a specific purpose, we would be very happy to discuss this with you and honour your intentions.

A gift of any size is truly appreciated and really does help to make a difference.

There may be opportunities to name Fellowships, scholarships, prizes, bursaries and buildings for certain gifts. Please contact our Alumni Manager, Jess Mackenzie, for more details.
