Remembering St Margaret’s College in your Will ensures that future generations of girls continue to live and lead. Just as past legacies of Old Girls and Friends are supporting St Margaret’s College today, your bequest is an investment in the future for tomorrow’s students, the quality of their education and an effective way to help sustain the school beyond your lifetime.
If you have already included St Margaret’s College in your Will or are considering doing so, you do not need to let us know. However, informing us of your intentions allows us to thank you, recognise your generosity in your lifetime and discuss your wishes in more detail. Your legacy will remain confidential and any discussions are not binding in any way.
If you have your assets in a Family Trust, you may give a memorandum of wishes to your Trustees, stipulating that on your death you wish the Trustees to make a gift to St Margaret’s College. You can describe your gift in a similar way to that set out below.
