Remembering the RGS in your will opens doors and provides transformational opportunities to a new generation of RGS pupils. We invite all those who have given in this way to join the Beckingham Society, giving you the opportunity to take an active role in the life of the School. The annual Beckingham Society Luncheon with the Headmaster offers the chance for members to hear about the School’s progress and future plans.
If you would like to find out more about remembering the RGS in your will, contact Jenny Rothwell, Development Executive.
Gift Aid & Tax Relief
If you are a UK taxpayer, the RGS Foundation receives an additional £25 for every £100 you give, at no extra cost to you. (This is money that would otherwise go to the taxman). However you choose to donate, please Gift Aid it!
If you pay income tax at the higher rate in the UK, you must include all your Gift Aid donations on your Self Assessment tax return, if you want to receive the additional tax relief due to you. We can help with higher and top rate tax information if required.
