Legacy & Donations

Thank you for supporting St Bede’s College.


We realise that not everyone will be able to make a donation to the College in their lifetime. A legacy donation from your will is one of the most meaningful and enduring gifts that you can make and a Mass is celebrated annually in the College giving thanks for this.

Establishing your Legacy
All legacy donations made are free of inheritance, income and capital gains tax. Under current rules, if you leave 10% or more or your chargeable net estate to charity, the Inheritance Tax rate on the whole of your taxable estate is reduced from 40% to 36%.

Please consult your legal advisers before drafting a new will, updating an existing one or making other plans for your estate. If you chose to amend your will with a codicil form then we would be happy to supply one of these.

The College is extremely proud of its Catholic heritage and richly diverse history, educating young people with respect, dignity and compassion.


Thank you for choosing to support the Bursary Fund of St Bede’s College, Manchester (Charity Number: 1176091)  as one of your chosen charities. Your support and generosity no matter what size, will make a real difference to the life of a young person, helping them to achieve their full potential. You can support this campaign through donations or by leaving a legacy.

You can set up a regular donation or give a one-off gift here using the CAF.

All donors will be recognised in the Annual Giving Report and you will receive a copy of this. Donors of gifts of £1,000 or more, will be invited to the College Production and a VIP Reception beforehand. Gifts of £10,000 or more merit more bespoke arrangements which we would be delighted to discuss at the time.

Anonymity, if preferred, will of course be respected.

If you would prefer to set up a regular donation or send your gift by post, please contact our Development Office on 0161 226 3323 or development@stbedescollege.co.uk
