A gift to the Roedean 120th birthday Legacy Fund capital campaign is an opportunity to help shape and elevate the learning environment for our students. More details will be shared in the coming weeks on what capital projects you can support as part of this campaign.
Leaving a Legacy to Roedean School through your will (South Africa only)
Your will is naturally a private matter, but if you’re willing to keep us informed about any decision you make relating to naming us in your will, we’d appreciate the chance to thank you properly. Use your will to change a life today and a generation tomorrow.
Estate duty refers to a tax of 20% that is levied on the estate of a deceased person in accordance with the provision of the Estate Duty Act. Estate duty is levied on the dutiable portion of the deceased estate. Currently, estate duty is levied at a rate of 20% on assets exceeding R3.5-million in the estate at the time of the donor’s death. One way to avoid paying estate duty is by leaving a legacy to an institution such as Roedean. Charitable legacies of this nature are deducted from the value of the estate before duty is calculated. It is best to consult with your attorney for advice if you plan to make a charitable gift to Roedean in terms of a will.
