The Samuel Blythe Society exists to acknowledge and celebrate the generosity of all those who intend to leave a gift to Clare College in their Will.

We very much welcome the opportunity to thank our legacy donors for their support during their lifetimes, so when a member tells us that they have included the College in their Will, they are automatically enrolled into the Samuel Blythe Society. The society is named after the 17th century Master of Clare whose generous bequest to the College guaranteed its continuing success and prosperity. 

Over 300 alumni and friends have told us that they are planning to leave a gift to Clare in their Wills.

Members of the Samuel Blythe Society are invited to a special celebratory event each year. They are also listed in the Clare Review, unless they prefer to remain anonymous.

Members are also presented with an enamelled lapel-pin (exclusive to the Samuel Blythe Society) bearing the Clare coat of arms.
