Since its foundation in 1427, Lincoln has relied greatly on legacies from Fellows, alumni and friends to maintain and further its aspirations for excellence in all fields. Virutally every major building, scholarship and facility in the College owes something to a legacy benefaction. To this day, alumni and well-wishers are enumerated in the list of benefactors read out in Chapel by the Rector on Chapter Days.
Those who make provisions in their will for Lincoln, or give through another deferred giving vehicle, deserve recognition and thanks. Named after a much-loved Rector and educational reformer, Keith Murray, the Murray Society is open to anyone who has made this type of commitment and allows the College to express its very real gratitude through events and other benefits including:
- Two issues of The Grove newsletter per annum
- Special publications, which are sent with The Grove, allow you to learn more about the College's history and the research being done by students and Fellows
- Invitations to social events in Oxford and elsewhere, including two annual Murray Society Days, at Lincoln and in London
- Access to informal legal and practical advice
- A Murray Society tie and/or lady's scarf for you and your spouse/partner
