Leaving a Legacy to Homerton College

For more than two hundred years, legacies have helped fund teaching at Homerton. Recent bequests by Alison Shrubsole, Hilary Shuard, Joan Simms and others have empowered the College in its core activities of teaching, education and research. They are a most important means of augmenting the endowment and meeting future needs. To expand its support to students, the College encourages Homertonians to provide for a legacy in their Will.
