Recognising Your Gift
We are delighted to recognise the generosity of our donors in a number of ways. You can read about some of the recognition programmes below.
The Brewer Street Society
The Brewer Street Society was established to recognise all those who have kindly remembered the School in their wills.
A legacy is one of the easiest and most flexible ways of making a gift to a fund of your choice, and may allow you to support the School in a way in which you may not be able to during your lifetime. Charitable bequests in the UK incur neither capital gains nor inheritance tax. You can further reduce the inheritance tax payable on the remainder of your estate by leaving above a certain proportion to charity.
Please see the details of the Brewer Street Society (and a letter from the School’s Headmaster) in the relevant brochure. Alternatively, please contact the Development Director if you would like to discuss a planned bequest.
Heart Sponsorship - £1,000
The installation of a replica of the original cast iron railings to the front entrance of No 3 Brewer Street took place in 2010 to create an additional secure garden area for our pupils. The ironwork was produced using the same moulds (which have miraculously survived) and made by a direct descendent of the Victorian artisan who first installed the original set. At the top of each of the cast iron railings is the shape of a heart, thought to be inspired by the Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland. Dean Liddell, father of Alice, created No 3 Brewer Street in 1892.
To support the School's Buildings & Fabric fund, we are inviting sponsorship of all 90 remaining hearts, offering a unique opportunity and a wonderful way of commemorating current or former pupils’ time at the School in perpetuity.
To name a heart will cost £1,000 (or £13.34 a month over 5 years with Gift Aid) and comes with a commemorative plaque that permanently marks the generosity of each donor.
In addition to the above, we have a range of further naming opportunities at all levels. If you would like to discuss these in detail, please contact the Development Director.
