Legacy Giving

A legacy gift is one of the simplest and most impactful gifts you can make to Ardingly.

It creates a permanent testimony to your affection for the College and allows you to provide support in a way in which you may not be able to during your lifetime.

Gifts in Wills make an enormous difference to our sustainability. They not only assist the College with the massive expense of maintaining our historic buildings, but also provide much-needed capital that is otherwise not available from school fee surpluses. Most importantly, they help the College to reinforce its fiscal foundation, allowing it to weather the test of time as well implement long-term plans that build a stronger, more secure future in which subsequent generations of Ardinians can participate.

Legacy gifts can also help build the College’s Endowment Fund for transformational bursaries. The gift of education is life-changing for the individual, but a generous bursary scheme also benefits the wider Ardingly community: all our students gain from being part of a supportive community that is inclusive, friendly and diverse.

We are hugely indebted to those who have recognised the importance of providing for the long-term financial support of Ardingly in this way and all those who advise us of their intention to make a legacy gift to the College are recognised as members of the 1858 Society.
