Helping others to Step Forward

 

Remembering Lourdes Hill College in your Will is a very real way you can help other students to step forward at the College for years to come. A bequest is a meaningful way to contribute to the College community through the education of girls and future leaders. It also provides a way to make a significant gift that you may not find possible during your lifetime.

Making a Will ensures that everything you have worked hard for in your lifetime is passed on to your loved ones and the causes you care about. A bequest is a personal gift of great importance and is a legacy for future generations of Lourdes Hill College girls.

Considerations

Lourdes Hill College recommends consultation with a solicitor in drawing or amending a Will. It is also recommended that you discuss with family members, and others impacted by your choice, your wishes to make a bequest to the College.
