The Lauriston Foundation


How do you want to be remembered? Can you make a difference to the lives of others?

A bequest or planned gift simply means you will include Lauriston as a beneficiary in your Will. Leaving a Gift in your Will not only enhances our students’ education and allows Lauriston to excel, but gives you a chance to contribute to the future of Lauriston and create your legacy. It’s never too early to start thinking about a charitable gift. We value every gift, no matter what shape or amount.

Elizabeth Kirkhope Circle

The Elizabeth Kirkhope Circle was established in 2011 to honour benefactors who have chosen to support the School directly through a gift in their Will, and commemorates the legacy of Miss Kirkhope who strongly advocated for the continued growth and progression of girls’ education.

Bequest Stories

Find out how the generosity of members of our Lauriston community has influenced lives of generations to come. Principals, grandparents and parents, school teachers, sports coaches, students – whether it’s knowledge, a skill or a passion, what people choose to pass on makes a positive difference to the next generation of Lauriston girls.

How to leave a bequest

Leaving a gift is a very personal decision. After considering the needs of your family and loved ones, you can consider bequesting the remaining assets to Lauriston. Alternatively, you can make a specific bequest, which could include a set amount of money, a portion of your estate or valuable collections you’d like to donate.

Life is about making an impact. Thank you for your gift.
