Trinity College students talking

A bequest is an effective and meaningful way of supporting the College.

Trinity College receives bequests of cash, shares or bonds, property or a percentage of the value of an estate. Bequests may be unrestricted, which enables the College to choose how best to apply the bequest funds,or designated, where you choose how the bequest funds will be used. We ask those considering a designated bequest to first consult the Advancement Office.

The most effective bequest is one that allows the College the flexibility to use donations in ways that best meet the College's needs at the time.

If you intend to leave a bequest to Trinity, you need to have your will prepared by a solicitor or trustee company, and reviewed regularly or as circumstances change. 

The Leeper Society

Alumni and friends who have made bequests to Trinity are eligible for membership of the Leeper Society.

The Leeper Society was established in 1990 and named after Dr Alexander Leeper, the first Warden of Trinity College. The Society works to:

  • highlight the importance of bequests for ensuring the continued effectiveness of the College and secure its future
  • encourage and facilitate new and more generous bequests
  • honour those who have made bequests.

Each year, members of the Leeper Society are invited to a small number of exclusive events.
