Leaving a Legacy

A gift for the future

Over the years, many generous alumni and friends of the School have chosen to remember Belfast Royal Academy in their will. This is the gift of a lifetime and one which we are honoured to receive. After you have taken care of the people closest to you, a portion of your remaining funds could make a significant difference to our finances. The impact of past bequests has been huge: building projects, new facilities, sport coaching, participation in educational programmes and bursaries… we would not be the school we are today without this tradition of generosity.

Why consider Belfast Royal Academy in your will?

You may have fond memories of being a pupil. You, your children or your grandchildren may have benefitted from the education and the ethos of the school. Whatever your reasons, you can be assured that when you leave a legacy to the school, your gift will be used to maintain the education, facilities and experiences that make Belfast Royal Academy a unique school.

A gift in your will can be a tax efficient way of making a significant donation to the School that may be unaffordable during your lifetime. Any gift to a registered charity made in your will, whether in the form of cash, shares, property, or other items, is deducted from your estate before Inheritance tax is calculated and therefore can reduce the tax liability on your estate.

Leave a gift in your will and help safeguard Belfast Royal Academy’s future.
