Recognising your Support

Each year we publish the names of our donors and those who have informed us that they are remembering Sidney in their will in our Annual Appeal and Report (respecting requests for anonymity). The names of those donors who are members of our 1596 Foundation and Montagu Fellows are also included in the College Annual.

Our 1596 Foundation helps us to honour our most generous donors during their lifetime.

Membership of the The Lady Frances Sidney Circle is given to all those who leave a gift to Sidney in their will.

We recognise those who endow a choral scholar with a bronze plaque on the Choir stalls in our chapel.
