Your Will is an excellent way to provide for the people who are important to you; your friends and family, to help the charities you support, and to acknowledge the influences that have shaped your life. By remembering Marlborough College in your Will, you can help secure its future for generations to come.
Legacies are a highly tax efficient way of making a donation, particularly where Estate Duty is likely to be incurred. All OMs, parents or friends who have pledged a legacy to the College become members of the 1843 Society.
There are different types of bequests, from a specific sum of money, to a percentage of your estate once other bequests have been made. Your legacy may be in the form of money or financial assets, such as shares or property.
This piece of work was painted by Rose Harris in the new Art Centre, provided with your support.
If you should wish to leave something to a specific project – Bursaries, Music, Drama, Sport, Art, a capital project, or any area of your particular interest, that is also welcome and again we are happy to discuss any specific requests (see Case Studies).
How we can help
As mentioned, there are tax benefits to leaving a legacy. We can provide you with a list of solicitors who are OMs; alternatively, your own solicitor could make the necessary arrangements.
If you have already made a Will, you can simply add a Codicil to include the Marlborough College Foundation. We would be happy to provide you with a specimen form of Codicil.
We would be very grateful if you could let us know in confidence of any bequests that you have made to the College. Such knowledge assists and encourages our work in the promotion of the 1843 Society.
Please get in touch with the Foundation Office or complete our request form if you require any further information.
