Bequests – Why leave a gift and how it helps?

A gift in your will to The Sydney High School Foundation provides an opportunity for you to leave behind an enduring contribution to education, while still enjoying your assets during your lifetime.

Each special bequest gift of any size provides the opportunity to support future bright boys of any background at Sydney Boys High and leave a legacy that will honour yourself, your family or someone you cherish for years to come.

                                                                                            Bequests can come from anyone in the community.

Leaving a Bequest to Sydney Boys High School

Depending on your values and passions, you may choose between several funds such as the Scholarship fund or Building Fund. Alternatively you may wish to consider an unspecified gift where funds will be allocated for use where most needed at the time. Bequests that support general priorities are greatly valued as they allow the school to respond with the greatest speed to changing needs and emerging opportunities. 

You may specify a gift as income from your estate, a percentage of your whole estate, the residue of your estate (monies remaining after providing for other beneficiaries), a specific asset, such as real estate, shares, bonds, life insurance policy, a fixed sum or other items of value.

We recommend consulting and considering family in your decision whilst seeking the advice of your solicitor.

Informing Sydney High School Foundation of your intention to leave a bequest allows us to acknowledge and thank our generous benefactors during your lifetime. This also assists the school in planning to support long term important future initiatives.
