Leaving a legacy gift to Clare in your will is something that anybody can do, at any age. Making a Will, or amending your existing Will to include Clare, isn't complicated and should cost around £200. Your solicitor can tell you how to go about it.  

Clare has relied on legacy gifts for almost seven hundred years. Many were given by Fellows and alumni, including Samuel Blythe and Paul Mellon.
