Legacy Gifting

Why leave a gift in your will?

You could make a difference to future Rishworthians, by leaving a gift to Rishworth in your will. All gifts directly support work that enhances the lives of Rishworthians. 

How will my gift be used by School?

This is entirely up to you! Some people may choose to support our bursary fund through their legacy, others may wish for it to go towards a specific department of the school or passion project e.g. boarding, drama, rugby, music, the chapel etc. We would very much like to involve you in the conversation as to how your legacy may be used to the long term benefit of the school.

Our pledge to you

We appreciate how important this gift is to you and understand that there will be many things in your personal circumstances that you need to consider when making a gift in your Will.

We understand that the contents of your Will are a private matter. However, should you wish to let us know of your intention to leave a gift to Rishworth School Foundation, we would like to thank you for your support. To show our appreciation, we invite those who have pledged a gift in their Will to become members of the 1724 Society, which holds special events at the school each year and keeps its members up to date with developments at the school. 


If you have any further questions please email our Director of Marketing and Admissions, Richard Danks, who will be happy to assist you
