Making a gift in your Will

Te tākoha mā tō ōhākī

A legacy of Truth, Excellence and Faith for the future.

A gift in your Will to St Andrew’s College is a gift to creating confident, articulate, compassionate, caring and creative young people of energy and integrity, for generations.

A gift in your Will for education is one of the most powerful ways to support and shape the future, whether large or small, your gift will impact the lives of young people and open doors to opportunity for generations to come.

The generous philanthropy of our St Andrew’s College community, combined with vision, passion and wise stewardship, has sustained our students for the past one hundred years, and is what enables us to step forward confidently into the next one hundred years, continuing to nurture our dynamic young community of learners.

Creating a gift in your Will for St Andrew’s College gives you the opportunity to envision and realise that future with us – what part will you play in empowering St Andrew’s sons and daughters of tomorrow?

You can inspire and support future generations in ways you never knew were possible.

Benefits of making a gift in your Will

  • the opportunity to make a difference to a cause important to you;
  • fulfilment of personal philanthropic goals while still having the use of your assets;
  • the opportunity to honour someone special in a meaningful way;
  • the opportunity to create something extraordinary.

How to leave a Legacy in your Will

Your Legacy Gift can take the form of a percentage of an estate, a fixed financial amount of an estate, the residue of an estate, a life insurance policy or a Memorandum of Wishes to the Trustees of your Family Trust.

Involve your family when leaving a legacy to St Andrew’s College in your Will and contact your lawyer.  If you already have a Will and would like to update it to include a bequest to St Andrew’s College, this is a simple matter of asking your legal advisor to include a new clause, for which we can provide the appropriate wording.

A gift of any size counts
