The Lanyon Society

The Lanyon Society represents a unique group of graduates and friends who have pledged a charitable legacy in their wills to support life-changing research and education at Queen's.

It embodies a group of visionaries who believe in the University's responsibility to understand the important traditions of the past, the challenges of the present and the possibilities of the future. Legacy pledgers fund life-changing research and scholarships to ensure that young people with talent can come to Queen’s, regardless of their financial circumstances.
