Bequests - Giving to Epsom Girls Grammar School

  • Education

  • Sport

  • Art

  • Science

  • Culture

Should you wish to provide philanthropic support without affecting your lifestyle, including Epsom Girls Grammar School in your Will is an option for your consideration.

Making a gift in your will (often referred to as a bequest or a legacy) is a unique way of reflecting your own interests, passion and vision for the future success of Epsom Girls Grammar School in areas of education, sports facilities and resources, teaching or community benefit.  Whether you wish your gift to be made in memory of someone close to you, to carry on your own name in perpetuity or to be given anonymously, it is a gift with value and that on-going will make a difference to thousands of young women every year.

What your bequest gift will do
Your gift will enable Epsom Girls Grammar School to pursue and achieve excellence in an area of scholarship or facilities that may not be otherwise possible. Should you wish, we would be delighted to assist you in defining how Epsom Girls Grammar School would apply your bequest to reflect what is important to you. You may choose to give Epsom Girls Grammar School directives specifying how the funds are to be distributed, the process of distribution, the recipient criteria and the type of expenditure. You simply outline your objectives and intentions - we then provide information on relevant options to ensure that the outcomes achieved, as a result of your generosity and support, are indeed meaningful to you.

A gift from the residue of your estate

The “residue” of your estate is the pool of assets remaining once your estate’s expenses have been paid and all specific legacies have been paid or satisfied.


If you wish to leave the whole or a part of your residuary estate to The Epsom Girls Grammar School Foundation you will need to include the appropriate wording in the residuary provisions of your Will. You will need to discuss this with your legal adviser so that the appropriate provision can be made.

Acknowledging your contribution

We wish to thank and acknowledge all those who make bequests and endowments to the Epsom Girls Grammar School Foundation. A huge thanks from us to you.
