Leaving a Legacy

By remembering the College with a gift in your will, you can help to support scholarships, bursaries and grants; fund Fellowships; and enhance our College environment.

Robert Hannigan, Warden

Wadham owes its existence to a legacy by Nicholas Wadham, whose wishes to establish a college in Oxford were executed by his wife, Dorothy Wadham, following his death in 1609. Today, legacies from alumni and friends continue to form the bedrock of the College's financial existence, ensuring that Wadham can remain a vibrant and diverse seat of academic excellence.

Remembering Wadham in your will – whether through a large or a modest gift – is one of the most powerful ways in which you can be part of the College's future.

I very much hope you will join the vast community of alumni and friends who, over the centuries, have contributed with their generosity to make Wadham the progressive, academic institution it is today, and can be tomorrow.

"Without a College scholarship I might never have been able to attend Oxford. Now I want to help future generations benefit from the same inclusiveness by leaving a gift in my will."

Colin Drummond, (Classics, 1969), President of the 1610 Society
