Haileybury in your Will

Including Haileybury in your will is one of the most impactful ways you can support the School. For Haileybury, legacy gifts go a long way in helping to secure our financial future, ensuring we can continue to inspire and motivate our pupils for generations to come.

“I am excited to think that I could still continue to shape my legacy even after I have left. That’s the great thing about Haileybury – you are always connected”

How will my legacy be used?

You can decide whether you would like your legacy to support the School broadly or go towards a specific purpose or part of the School that is meaningful to you. 

Unrestricted 

Unrestricted gifts give the School the greatest flexibility to allocate your support carefully to the areas of greatest need. Annual unrestricted support is crucial for the School’s financial health, enabling us to maintain a tradition of excellence by applying the funds flexibly to a variety of needs – both expected and unforeseen.

Specific Purpose

You may prefer to direct your legacy towards a specific purpose that is meaningful to you, for example pupil bursaries, a specific House or department, or new equipment or facilities. We welcome the opportunity to discuss your plans with you before you commit them to a will, to ensure we can meet your wishes. 

The following wording can be adapted by your solicitor to suit the type of gift you wish to leave.

Residuary Legacy. 

This is a gift of the remainder (or proportion of the remainder) of your estate, after all payments, taxes and other bequests have been made. This option allows you to take care of friends and family first and still make a meaningful donation. We suggest the following wording:

“I give ___% / all [please specify] of the residue of my estate to the Trustees of Haileybury and Imperial Service College, (Registered Charity Number 310013) of Hertford, Hertfordshire, SG13 7NU, to hold on trust for its general charitable purposes.”

Pecuniary Legacy

This is a fixed sum of money decided by you. We suggest the following wording:

“I give the sum of ___ to the Trustees of Haileybury and Imperial Service College, (Registered Charity Number 310013) of Hertford, Hertfordshire, SG13 7NU, to hold on trust for its general charitable purposes.”

Specific Legacy

You can also bequeath specific personal possessions such as property or shares. We suggest the following wording:

“I give ___________ [detailed description of specific item] to the Trustees of Haileybury and Imperial Service College, (Registered Charity Number 310013) of Hertford, Hertfordshire, SG13 7NU, to hold on trust for its general charitable purposes.”

Reversionary Legacy

This enables you to pass your estate (or asset) to an initial beneficiary to have the benefit and enjoyment during their lifetime. After that time, the estate (or asset) can be passed to the School absolutely.

Wording for reversionary bequests to support the School will need to be discussed with your solicitor.

 

When making or updating your will we strongly recommend that you consult a solicitor to ensure it is legally valid and accurately reflects your intentions.
