Named after the much-loved Headmistress of Ashford Girls’ School, Miss Lilian Brake (1928-1955), members of The Lilian Brake Legacy Society have left designated gifts to the School in their wills, donated towards our bursary fund or other areas of interest, such as capital projects.
A legacy is one of the simplest and most flexible ways of making your gift and allows you to support the School in a way in which you may not be able to do during your lifetime. The tax benefits of a legacy gift to the Foundation are considerable – all such bequests can be made free from Inheritance Tax and Capital Gains Tax, so you could reduce the total tax burden levied on your estate to your family. Recent legacies have ranged from a few hundred pounds, to a collection of books, to a whole estate and have been received from past pupils and former staff.
If you would like to find out more about including a gift in your will and joining the Legacy Club, please contact our Head of Alumni and Development, Hannah Strassburg at [email protected].
