Malvern St James, in keeping with the principles embodied by its founding schools, is supported most generously through legacy gifts. A legacy donation is one of the greatest gifts you can make as it creates a testimony for all that the school and its heritage stands for.
A bequest allows you to support the school in a way in which you may not be able during your lifetime. No matter how large or small, you will be endowing the future of Malvern St James. Committed to continuing our founding schools’ vision of excellence in all girls’ education in Malvern, the School’s aspirations of increased bursaries and new development projects cannot be met through fee income alone.
Legacy donations can be allocated to specific ways of supporting the School’s future or left unrestricted. The Governors, Trustees and Head will always honour the wishes expressed within any Will.
There are also considerable tax benefits to making such a gift - bequests can be made free from Inheritance and Capital Gains Tax, meaning you could reduce the total tax burden levied on your estate to your family. If you choose to tell us of your intention, it can help us to plan for the future, although there is no obligation to let us know and gifts can even be left anonymously if you wish.
We are immensely grateful to all those who have recognised the importance of providing for the long term support of the School in this way. If you would like to discuss this option further then please contact Fiona Meredith, External Relations Director by email or call +44 (0)1684 892288.
