“I want to see this College continuing to provide a friendly and welcoming place for education and research, in an atmosphere of academic freedom, whilst also offering a supportive and sensitive community in which all are able to grow and discover new things about themselves. This has certainly been my experience and, I hope, that of others too. It is a privilege to be part of this community and I am delighted that I will be able to carry on playing my part here in the future through my legacy.” Fiona Floate, Personal Assistant to the Principal

Since Regent’s began to matriculate students in the 1950s, legacies and bequests have played an important role in supporting the development of the College. Leaving a gift in your will would help to advance our mission of providing first-class teaching and research. If you are considering leaving a gift to Regent’s Park College in your will, we would be pleased to talk to you about your wishes and intentions. Although we are unable to offer legal or financial advice, we are happy to answer your questions about legacies in general.
A will is very personal, and we quite understand if you prefer to keep your intentions private. However, if you do wish to let us know about a legacy to Regent’s, we will be able to thank you personally and keep you informed about the impact your gift could make. You can fill in the form available here to let us know your intentions. This does not commit you in any way – it simply includes us in your current plans so that we can respond appropriately. Please be assured that the information will be treated as confidential.
It is important to consult your legal adviser before drafting a new will; updating an existing one or making other plans for your estate. If you would like to leave a gift in your will to Regent’s, please use the following wording: ‘I give to Regent’s Park College (charity number 309710) the sum of [insert number] pounds (£[insert figure]) towards the General Fund; and I direct that the receipt of the Trusts Administrator or other proper officer of the Trust shall be a sufficient discharge to the executors for this gift.’
Residents of the USA can find out about planned giving opportunities through the Oxford Planned Giving website. For more information about legacies or any other matters concerning development at Regent’s, please contact the Director of Development:
