Bequests 
The McNeill Society

The McNeill Society has been established by the St Joseph’s College Foundation to recognise and honour those who remember the College in their will. The McNeill Society enables us to thank and recognise – privately or publicly - for their generosity towards the College. Often St Joseph’s College is not able to thank a donor in his or her lifetime and The McNeill Society allows us to express our gratitude in the here and now. It also allows us to make clear to bequestors just how valuable their gift to the College will be.

Our hope is that it will also encourage others  to include  a gift to St Joseph’s College in their will.

The McNeill Society – acknowledges the significant role bequests have played and will continue to play in the life of the College. The McNeill Society has been named after John McNeill, (SJC 1935-1937) A foundation student. 

From its beginnings in 1935, bequests and other philanthropic gifts have enabled the College to move forward, and adapt to changing needs by providing students with new facilities, access scholarships, and bursaries.  The McNeill Society honours the original men and women who believed in St Joseph’s College from its beginning and acknowledges the significant role bequests have played and will continue to play in the life of the College.

Members will be listed in/on the College’s Bequest Register/Honour Board and other publications, receive a membership pin and be invited to The McNeill Society functions. There are no membership fees or regulations. Membership can be anonymous if preferred.

“The reason I have for making a bequest to St Joseph’s and for joining the McNeill Society is simple. 
I believe every boy should have the opportunity of a St Joseph’s education and I want to continue to be part of that story going forward” - Kevin Costa, SJOCA 1961 & Foundation Member
