A gift to Friends’ School in your Will can provide students for years to come with the opportunities and benefits that are unique to a Friends’ education. It is a way for you to give to the School that may not be possible during your lifetime.
There are many options available for you to decide how your bequest can be shaped. You may wish to include a portion of your estate, or a specific sum of money. You may have stocks or shares, real estate or particular works of art. Alternatively you may wish to fund a new scholarship, a classroom or science laboratory.
Your personal invitation to join Friends for Furtherance
After you have decided to include The Friends’ School in your Will we would like to ask you to make your bequest intention known to us, whereupon you will be invited to join a special group of Friends – Friends for Furtherance.
As a member of this group, your commitment to the School will be honoured with unique functions associated with School that are of specific interest to you – such as special Assemblies, lectures, art shows and music recitals. We will happily acknowledge your wish to remain anonymous and can ensure your presence at these events remains confidential.
Grateful thanks for a recent bequest
The Friends School recently received a generous Bequest donation from Frances Parson. Frances was a Principal of Jane Franklin Hall and PLC Armidale. She created a vibrant, international community of learning at both schools. During her spiritual journey Frances found a home with Quakers. She was a true seeker, and in her later years she commented that while she believed fewer things, she believed in them more deeply. We thank Frances for her generous Bequest.
