Your Legacy can make a huge difference to HOPE Foundation and could help us establish an endowed fund for future generations. Leaving a legacy to HOPE Foundation is a meaningful way to perpetuate the College’s charitable mission as articulated throughout our 400 year history.

With the College having been a part of the lives of so many dedicated people, a legacy to the College is a definitive expression of life-long commitment to health care for those in disadvantaged circumstances. To learn more about leaving a gift in your will for HOPE Foundation, please contact Julie Forster, HOPE Foundation Manager, for a confidential conversation.

Companies can also donate and will be recognised for their support in an agreed and appropriate way. Our worldwide network of members and friends will be delighted to hear about your participation and support. To find out more please download our corporate proposal here.

Events: The College members frequently hold social events and have chosen to donate to HOPE Foundation through raffles, appeals and ticket sales. In addition, HOPE will organise one major fundraising event per year and looks forward to welcoming our guests to the College. If you would like to support HOPE through your event, please get in touch with Julie Forster to discuss and promote your ideas.
