Stonyhurst has benefited from legacies since its very earliest days and each year, legacies to Stonyhurst contribute a significant amount to our highest priorities, ensuring that what our donors were privileged to experience has been kept live and passed on.

Legacy gifts can be consigned to specific areas, including bursaries, the Collections and Archives or somewhere most meaningful to you.

The Thomas Weld Society

Membership of the Thomas Weld Society is offered to those who have generously made a legacy gift to Stonyhurst, thus keeping up the connection with our first benefactor, Thomas Weld in 1794. Leaving a legacy to Stonyhurst and membership of The Thomas Weld Society is an opportunity to provide massive and unqualified moral support to our magnificent schools.

In the words of the late Peter Anwyl, former President of the Thomas Weld Society, by leaving a legacy “we are getting close as is practical to the Jesuit charism on which we base all that we do.  Weld members can ensure the future is as glorious and illustrious as our past.”

All members of the Thomas Weld Society are invited to our annual Service of Thanks, followed by lunch, in October.
