Legacy Giving

Legacy Giving

There are stars whose light only reaches the earth long after they have fallen apart. There are people whose remembrance gives light in this world, long after they have passed away.
The Talmud

What is legacy giving?

Legacy giving is leaving a bequest. It is a provision made in your Will to make a gift to a worthy cause or institution. It enables you to make a gift sometimes at a level not possible during your lifetime. Through a bequest to the Moriah Foundation you can contribute to the future of the College and its students. The education of our children remains utterly central to our strength as a people and a bequest to Moriah College will help ensure a healthy future for our Jewish community.

Bequests are a very personal matter and can be made in a number of ways to reflect your particular wishes. Bequests can comprise a specific amount of money or a percentage of your estate after you have provided for your family and friends.

Will my bequest make a difference?

Every bequest, large or small, is an opportunity for you to make a very special, tangible and lasting gift, which will touch the lives of future Moriah College students.

How will my bequest be used?

Unless otherwise instructed, your gift will be directed to the Moriah Foundation Bursary Fund. The Bursary Fund is a specific fund designed to support Jewish education and to make it affordable for more Jewish children in Sydney to receive a Moriah education. Your commitment through a bequest to the Moriah Foundation is a lasting way of ensuring the strength and viability of the College and of contributing to the future strength of the Sydney Jewish Community as a whole.

Alternatively, you may prefer to direct your bequest to a specific area of Moriah College about which you feel personally passionate. Please feel free to discuss this with us.

How do I make a gift to the Moriah Foundation through a bequest in my Will?

We recommend that you involve your family in your decision to make a gift to the Moriah Foundation and that you also seek the advice of your solicitor.

If you have already made a Will, you may simply add a codicil to include the Moriah Foundation. This is a straightforward and inexpensive procedure. If the Foundation is already included in your Will, we encourage you to notify us.

Should you tell Moriah College you are making a bequest?

There is no obligation to notify us that you have made a bequest, or the value of your bequest. However, a notified bequest to the Foundation will entitle you to the appropriate recognition, and to enjoy a fulfilling association with the College during your lifetime.

How do I register my intention to make a bequest?

If you wish to indicate your support for Moriah College by making a bequest to the Foundation, or notify us of your bequest so that we may include you in special events held for our members, please contact the Foundation Director on (02) 9375 1774 or email foundationpresident@moriah.nsw.edu.au. All information will be treated in the strictest confidence.

Your bequest will make a difference.
