Make a Gift

Why Make a Gift?

By giving so generously you enable us to provide life-changing opportunities to disadvantaged young people in need of a boarding style of education.  All monies donated will support Foundation pupils (known as Foundationers), the improvement of our facilities or will be put towards educational resources. If you have a preference for how your gift is used, please specify when making your donation.  We acknowledge all our donors on our annual Donor Roll published in our Kestrel magazine.

If you have any questions, contact the External Relations Team on or 01428 68 6730.

Donation Options

We offer a number of ways to make a gift to The Bridewell Foundation. Recurring gifts are always welcome as they enable the School to be proactive with our support for Foundation pupils and future improvement plans. We would request that UK tax payers consider opting in to Gift Aid as doing so allows the School to reclaim 25% on your gift.

Legacy Gifts

Legacy gifts have been a vital part of keeping our founding mission alive for centuries.  Unrestricted legacies to The Bridewell Foundation allow us to support the areas of greatest need in the School – now, and in the future.  However, we do appreciate that you may wish to stipulate a specific area for support, in which case it would be helpful to discuss this with the Director of External Relations to ensure that your wishes can be met.

As a registered charity, a legacy to The Bridewell Foundation is, in most instances, tax free and you may you qualify for a reduced rate of inheritance tax.
