Regular gifts make a great difference to St Edmund's, as a commitment to make annual, quarterly or monthly instalments for an agreed number of years enables the College to plan for the future with a known and regular income for the immediate future. For more information on how you can make your gift tax-efficient, visit our page on the Gift Aid scheme and giving from abroad.
All gifts via Direct Debit will be followed with a thank you letter and a Direct Debit Guarantee which acts as a record of your gift.
‘The 1896 Society’ recognises those who have regularly given their support to the College's fundraising projects. The name commemorates the date when Father Edmond Nolan, Vice-President of St Edmund’s College, Ware, moved to Cambridge and established the embryonic St Edmund’s House, initially with one student.
Alumni and Friends who make a one-off donation of over £500, or donate regularly to the College over a three year period will be invited to join the Society and invited to a triennial gathering. The inaugural event will be in 2016. Members of the Society will also receive correspondence to update them on the Society’s membership and life at the College.
