Remembering Christ’s Hospital in your Will
Legacies are vital to our ability to fund bursaries for the neediest of pupils at Christ’s Hospital. We understand that decisions concerning your Will are very personal and your family will be your first priority, we hope you might consider supporting future generations of pupils by including Christ’s Hospital in your Will.
Legacy bequests are free from inheritance tax and gifts of shares and property are exempt from capital gains tax. Making a Will is an important step and it is recommended that you seek independent professional legacy advice. When making a bequest in your Will, please note that the beneficiary should be the Christ’s Hospital Foundation, registered charity number 306975.
To thank those who have let us know that they are leaving a gift to Christ’s Hospital in their Will, we have created the 1552 Society. Members are invited to special school events throughout the year.
For more information, or to discuss any aspect of this further in confidence, please contact Sarah Clifton on T: 01403 247588 or E: firstname.lastname@example.org
Over £10,800 raised on #GivingTuesday – Thank you!
Christ’s Hospital thanks everyone who made a gift to the Blue Fund on 29 November for #GivingTuesday. Nearly one hundred donors made a donation, raising over £10,800! This far exceeds our target of £5000 and we are enormously grateful for the generous support of parents, Old Blues, staff and other friends of Christ’s Hospital who made this possible.
This was the first year the Christ’s Hospital has taken part in #GivingTuesday, a worldwide initiative supported by the Charities Aid Foundation, to encourage support for UK charities. This resounding success has helped put us one step closer towards our £190,000 Blue Fund target of funding another pupil’s seven year education and boarding at Christ’s Hospital.
