Leave a Legacy

Leaving a legacy to Borlase is possibly the greatest gift you can make to the School, certainly one that will make a significant difference to the lives of future generations of Borlasians. Since our beginnings in 1624, Borlase has benefited enormously from the generosity of Old Borlasians, past parents and others who have remembered the school in their wills.

Making a bequest is simple, although you are advised to seek legal advice, and can either be included in a new will or added as a codicil to an existing will; furthermore it will be free from inheritance tax and capital gains tax.

There are many reasons why you may wish to leave Borlase a legacy in your will.  It may be a wish to enhance the facilities, or perpetuate the name of a loved one; alternately you may want to express gratitude and give something back as a gesture of appreciation for your successes in later life, or perhaps provide life changing opportunities to others through a scholarship or bursary.

Whatever your reasons, a legacy bequest can be directed at any specific area of school development or school life, as you wish.
