What is the JM Wright Bequest Society?
The JM Wright (JMW) Bequest Society was established in 2023 to recognise the generosity of a growing number of staff, alumni and friends who have pledged support to All Saints’ College through a gift in their Will.
Membership is open to anyone who confirms their intention to leave a bequest to the All Saints’ College Foundation in their Will. Should you choose to help support future All Saints’ College students through a gift in your Will, you will become a member of this special group which will form lifelong bonds through a shared commitment to leaving a lasting legacy.
Members of the JM Wright Bequest Society will maintain a close and enduring connection to the College by:

- Being kept up to date with key All Saints’ College initiatives and projects;

- Acknowledgement publicly (if desired)
All Saints’ College Foundation welcomes gifts of all sizes. Every gift in a will makes a lasting and meaningful difference, supporting the College’s vision for the education of young people to make a positive difference in the world.
We graciously recognise Leonie Baldock as the Patron of the JM Wright Bequest Society, whose mother, Jennifer Mary Wright, made a significant gift to the College in 2017.
