By remembering Melbourne High School in your Will, you are ensuring a lasting legacy and will benefit generations of students. Bequests have played a vital part in the growth and success of Melbourne High School over many years. Choosing to include us in your Will is a very personal and special form of support. As an Old Boy, a gift, whether large or small, is one way to give back to an organisation that helped you become the person you are – the best person you could possibly be. A bequest is also a fitting way to remember past students, staff and family members who have a close relationship with the school.
A gift in your Will can take many forms – cash (either a set amount, a percentage or residual) or assets, and can be directed as you wish. Leaving a gift in your Will can be done easily and simply. To ensure that your Will fulfils your intentions it should be drawn up by a solicitor or trust company. If you already have a Will, a solicitor can simply add an appropriate codicil.

‘My bequest is an expression of gratitude to a remarkable principal and staff who opened my eyes to a world of learning far beyond the dictates of the curriculum.’
