Why legacy giving matters
A message for legacy supporters from the Head of Legacy Giving, Anna Wall
I hope you are managing to stay safe and well during this coronavirus pandemic. Our researchers at Imperial are doing all they can to find a vaccine and our Faculty of Medicine students and doctors are caring for those affected by the virus in our hospitals. We’re incredibly grateful for all the philanthropic support we receive from our donors – this support has allowed us to respond quickly in this global fight.
One of the most important parts of my role here at Imperial is talking to our alumni and friends about what inspires you to make a legacy gift. I would like to assure you that we are still available to help you if you have any questions about writing your will or if you are considering a gift to Imperial, so please do not hesitate to contact us. We would be happy to hear from you and can update you on the work Imperial is carrying out to combat this pandemic.
A legacy gift is an expression of your values – of the principles that are important to you. It’s a very personal decision. Legacy gifts have impact across the College, and it’s possible to choose an area that fits with your own philanthropic priorities, whether that’s student scholarships, academic research, or fighting global challenges such as the coronavirus pandemic.
If you are interested in learning more about legacy giving, I would be delighted to have a chat with you to discuss your philanthropic goals. We are currently working remotely, but once the campus is open again, we’d love to welcome you to the College to see what we’re working on or find out where your support could be put to best use. We can also offer you a guided tour, or a meeting with our academics, or simply a cup of tea and a chat about the possibilities.
If you would like to arrange a conversation, please don’t hesitate to be in touch. Stay safe and well.
Head of Legacy Giving
We have transitioned to remote working of the university wherever possible with minimal activity on campus to ensure the safety of staff and students. This means we will temporarily be unable to process post – including donations made by cheque. There will be a significant delay in our ability to acknowledge your generosity or respond to any correspondence sent by post. If you have any questions, please do contact us.
We look forward to welcoming you back to campus when we re-open the College.
