Thank you for giving consideration to supporting our Bequest program. Bequests afford friends of the School an opportunity to support their dreams for Peninsula and to give an enduring gift that will make a difference well beyond the lifetime of the benefactor.
Peninsula Grammar welcomes bequests of any size and form; including cash, shares, property and valuables. Unrestricted bequests for general purpose are particularly useful as they allow the School to use your gift where it is most needed. However, you may have a particular area of interest or passion that you wish to support. Please be assured that whatever way you may wish your legacy to be used it will be respected and greatly appreciated.
As a guide, previous gifts to the School have been designated:
It is advisable that you contact the School to discuss any expectations surrounding recognition you may have in making your bequest. For example, some donors have instructed that their bequest is to remain anonymous and we therefore do not list it when publicising our benefactors. However, other bequests have resulted in the benefactor’s name being attached to a scholarship or, in the case of major donors, the name of a facility on the campus.
For information on Will preparation, we recommend that you seek legal advice to ensure that the wording of your bequest is appropriate for the gift you wish to make. You may also wish to discuss the possible tax deductibility of your bequest with a financial advisor.
The School is very much prepared to discuss any issues surrounding your bequest with you and your legal and financial advisors. Please do not hesitate to make contact with the Business Manager on (03) 9788 7706 who will readily assist you.
