Leaving a Gift in your Will

If you Will, They Can

In 1567 Lawrence Sheriff took the first steps towards creating history. He left a bequest in his Will to found a school to educate the boys of Rugby and Brownsover.

That is how Rugby School began, with a gift of £50 and an orchard in Bloomsbury.

As it was our 450th anniversary recently, our aim is to reach 450 legacy pledges for Rugby School. We currently have 320, will you be one of our 450 so your name gets added to a plaque on the Close?

Including Rugby School in your Will

Making a legacy pledge is quick and simple. Simply let us know you intend to remember the Arnold Foundation or Rugby School in your Will.

In order to set up your legacy and include us in your Will, please contact your solicitor.

The plaque on the Close will be commissioned as soon as we have our 450 pledges. Please join your fellow Rugbeians with your name on the Close and pledge to leave a legacy today.

You can include Rugby School in your Will by directing your gift to Rugby School with registered charity number: 528752.

Or to include the Arnold Foundation in your Will, please direct your gift to The Arnold Foundation for Rugby School with registered charity number: 1095856.

All legacy gifts, unless otherwise specified, are invested in the expendable endowment of the Arnold Foundation for Rugby School. This will ensure we can offer boarding bursaries to young people where talent is there but the means are not, for generations to come. If you wish to make a specific bequest, we would be more than happy to discuss your plans with us.

Please contact the Development Office on or 01788 556139 for more information.
