Leaving a Legacy

If you will, they can.

Leaving a gift in your Will is a wonderful way to ensure that the Arnold Foundation can continue to offer boarding bursaries to talented and deserving pupils for generations to come.  We very much hope that all Rugbeians, parents and friends will consider including the Arnold Foundation for Rugby School in their Will.

All gifts are greatly appreciated.  They are vital in allowing us to plan our future recruitment; just 1% of your residual estate could make a real difference. 

Unless otherwise specified, all legacy gifts to Rugby School or the Arnold Foundation for Rugby School, are placed within the endowment fund with income used to fund Arnold Foundation students at the School.

Including the Arnold Foundation for Rugby School in your Will

You can include the Arnold Foundation in your Will by directing your gift to The Arnold Foundation for Rugby School registered charity number 1095856.

Making a Will to include the Arnold Foundation need not be complicated or expensive.  If you would like more detailed information on how you can do this you should seek your own professional advice.  However, if you choose to leave a gift your professional adviser may find the following wording helpful:

I give to The Arnold Foundation for Rugby School (Charity Registration Number 1095856) the residue / a portion of the residue of my estate / the sum of £ (amount) with a request that it be expended on such of the Foundation's purposes as the Trustees shall from time to time determine.  I confirm that the receipt of a person who appears to be a proper officer of the said Foundation shall be a good discharge to my Executors.

If you would like further information, or would like to discuss a particular request in person, please do contact the Development Office on 01788 556 139 or

If you do decide to include the Arnold Foundation for Rugby School in your Will, it would be wonderful if you could let us know by clicking on the 'if you will, they can' button at the top of this page.  We will then invite you to relevant events and keep you up-to-date with the latest news.
