A Gift in your Will

“The wonderful community in Catz has given me great friends, constant intellectual stimulation and amazing support. Recognising what a huge benefit I have received from the College, I wanted to respond in a practical way by making a bequest in my Will.” The late Professor Sir Alan Battersby (1969, Honorary Fellow)

Remembering St Catharine’s in your will is an especially personal and powerful way to support the College. Legacy gifts have a tremendous and enduring impact, and bequests can attract favourable tax treatment. For more information, please contact Mrs Rachel Lawson, Deputy Development Director: ddd@caths.cam.ac.uk or +44 (0)1223 748165.

The Woodlark Society
The Woodlark Society of St Catharine’s was established in 1995 to recognise those who have made a legacy in favour of the College.

We recognise that your Will arrangements are a personal matter and you may wish them to remain confidential. However, if you were to let us know if the College is included in your Will, it would offer us an opportunity to thank you and invite you to join the Woodlark Society, should you wish to do so. Joining the Society is a matter of preference and some legators prefer to decline membership.

Members of the Society are invited to a special luncheon in College at the end of Michaelmas Term, as well as to the College Garden Party, which takes place in June. At St Catharine’s, the Deputy Development Director, Rachel Lawson, looks after all matters related to legacy giving.
