Alumni & friends/Support/
1571 Society

Legacies have played a very important role at Jesus College and have protected College since its first legacy was received over 300 years ago. We are grateful to all of our 1571 Society members who are committed to shaping and protecting Jesus for the future. The 1571 Society now has over 140 confirmed legators with representation from across a wide range of decades.



If leaving a legacy is something you might be considering, we encourage you to get in touch and let us know of your intention so that we can welcome you as a 1571 Society member. Each June we host our annual Legacy Luncheon to celebrate our members and thank them for their support.


“I am honoured to contribute to the tradition of generosity that has supported Jesus College and its students for centuries. While the specifics of my bequest may change over time, my commitment to the long-term future of College is steadfast.”

– David Choi (2022, MBA) Saïd Business School / Jesus College


We do not require any additional details for membership of 1571, as we understand that this is a very personal gift, although some alumni prefer to let us know how they plan to support College in the future.

Thank you so much for considering Jesus College in your plans.
