Supporting Ratcliffe with a gift or donation in your Will has a lifelong impact on future generations to come. We realise that it may not be practical for many Old Ratcliffians to offer financial support during their lifetime, and therefore, leaving a legacy behind in your Will is an extraordinary, tax efficient way, to honour the College and provide young people with the opportunity to excel in all opportunities available to them with a Ratcliffe education.
Your legacy can be directed towards a specific area of interest or left for the College to allocate to the area of the highest need.
For the Future
Looking ahead to the future, we aim to increase our Bursary support, see our Strategic vision for Bursaries.
We work to continually improve the College facilities, and a legacy gift could be directed to support development into the future.
It is Tax Efficient
All legacies left to Ratcliffe College are free from Inheritance Tax and Capital Gains Tax. If you do consider making a charitable gift in this way you will reduce the total tax liability of your estate and family.
When making your Will, it is recommended that you seek independent professional legal advice. If you decide to leave a legacy to Ratcliffe College, we would be grateful if you could notify us by completing this Legacy form. This is not a requirement, but it does assist the College in its long-term financial planning.
A Bursary in your name
Donations can be used to support a student and we would be very happy to discuss creating a bursary in you or your family’s name.
If you would like further information about supporting Ratcliffe College through your Will, or a confidential discussion about leaving a gift or a bursary in your name to Ratcliffe, please call Mrs Louise Liston (Development Manager) on 01509 817091, or email here.
