Making a bequest

A bequest to the Faculty of VCA and MCM ensures that the wonderful experiences you have enjoyed and valued in theatres, galleries, cinemas and concert halls during your lifetime will continue –young artists will receive the encouragement and support to flourish and have their work cherished by others.

We understand that making your Will is a very personal matter, but if you have already included the Faculty, or are considering doing so, it is important to let us know. It means we are able to thank you personally, and also discuss your wishes to ensure your intentions are achieved.

Anyone who notifies us of their intention to leave a bequest becomes a member of the Heritage Society – a group of like-minded alumni and friends who have pledged to remember the University in their Will. Heritage Society members are kept informed of University news and accomplishments, and offered opportunities to interact with University leaders, academics, students, and other Society members at special events.

We welcome discussion of your philanthropic priorities and how you wish to have an impact through giving. If you would like more information, please contact:
