Leaving a legacy

Leaving a legacy

A legacy bequest to Haileybury is one of the most worthwhile and significant gifts you can make. All bequests, of whatever type and size will benefit Haileybury and make a difference to the lives of young people for generations to come.

Leaving a legacy

Support future generations

As a registered charity, Haileybury is always grateful for ongoing support from those who would like to make a contribution to what they feel inspired their own or their children’s time at Haileybury.

Haileybury could not have achieved its success or be what it is today without the help of its alumni, friends and supporters. The special commitment shown by those who leave a legacy in their Will to secure the College’s work and values for future generations is ever more critical in present times.

It is simple to support Haileybury in your Will. If you have already made arrangements you can make a simple addition by Codicil. Please see the link below for a Codicil form. If you are considering leaving a gift to Haileybury, thank you.

Your legacy

Writing a Will is, quite rightly, a very personal choice. In making your Will, having naturally considered your family and loved ones first, we hope you may consider supporting Haileybury. If you choose to leave a legacy to Haileybury, any such bequest will be free from inheritance tax.

You may choose to bring forward your legacy and to make lifetime gifts so that you can see the benefits during your lifetime. Again, because Haileybury is a registered charity, it would not pay tax on a lifetime donation and you should be able to offset the donation against your own taxable income or gains.

A gift or legacy designated for the general purposes of Haileybury is the most useful type of gift as it enables Haileybury to be flexible in its response to changing circumstances and to meet the most pressing needs at the time. You may also choose to direct your bequest towards a specific purpose, for example bursaries or scholarships or to help finance building developments, equipment or facilities for pupils.

As your Will is one of the most important documents you will ever make, we recommend that you consult your legal advisers before drafting a new Will, updating an existing one or making other plans for your estate. We are unable to offer legal or financial advice but can answer questions about legacies in general.

It is possible for UK donors with Charity Aid Foundation (CAF) accounts to nominate Haileybury as a beneficiary through the CAF’s Expression of Wishes Form. Please click on the link below for further details. Thank you for considering including Haileybury in your Will; we are grateful for your support.
