The College recognises that giving through a will is a very personal matter and one that you may wish to keep private. However, it is useful for the College to have an indication of future legacies so that we can plan for the future, just like you, and also express our gratitude during your lifetime.
The Lady Frances Sidney Circle has been established so that we can acknowledge alumni and friends of the College who have chosen to remember Sidney in their will. Membership of the Circle, named after our founding benefactor, is offered to all those who pledge a legacy to the College, along with their partner.
Alumni and friends of Sidney in the USA can make a Planned Gift to the College with Cambridge in America. In addition to membership of the Lady Frances Sidney Circle, you will also become eligible to join the 1209 Society, established to recognise the generosity of those who have pledged a legacy to Cambridge.
