Bequests

Remembering Sacred Heart College in your will

Fountain_pen_shutterstockThe making of a Will is a task we all face: it is part of life and a gesture to those we leave behind.

Bequests are a lasting legacy that transcend time and benefit future generations. Leaving a Bequest is a simple procedure and allows Old Boys, parents and friends to include Sacred Heart College in their Will.

The Sacred Heart College Development Foundation is a charitable trust established to protect and safeguard Bequests and other donated funds for the benefit of Sacred Heart College, and it is an active partner in the development and growth of the College. We commend the Bequest programme as an uncomplicated way of contributing to the ongoing success of Sacred Heart College, and to ensuring that its traditions flourish into and beyond the 21st century.

What is a Bequest?
A Bequest is a statement within your Will of how you would like specific assets or funds distributed. Often it is a specified amountof money allocated to a specific cause ororganisation, like Sacred Heart College. Itcan also be a percentage of your estate, andis usually made once family members and/ordependents have been provided for.

What can I Bequest?
Bequests are generally one of the following:
Cash
Shares
Real estate
Personal property (such as art or antiques)

Where will my Bequest go?
Unrestricted bequests will usually be applied to the area of greatest need at the time, at the discretion of the College. This allows flexibility to direct funds to important projects evolving at the time and can make a significant difference to the success of the project.
Directed bequests can go to specific areas of your interest, for example Capital campaign,Marist Brothers, academic scholarships or teacher support.
