Become a Guardian of Ibba Girls’ School

Leaving a gift in your will to Ibba Girls’ School can ensure access to good quality education for some of the world’s most vulnerable and marginalised girls, empowering them to lead vital development in South Sudan. Legators will be honoured as Guardians of Ibba Girls’ School with the planting of a tree on site at the school.

There is more than one way to include Friends of Ibba Girls' School in your will – as a percentage (a ‘residuary gift’) or as a fixed amount (a ‘pecuniary gift’). You can also ask for donations ‘in memoriam’ from your friends and family (commonly chosen as an alternative to flowers). Below you can find example texts to consider with your solicitor.

There can also be a tax benefit from leaving a legacy to charity, as charitable donations are taken off before inheritance tax is calculated. In some cases, this can mean you leave more to your other beneficiaries. (However, please note that we are not qualified to give legal or financial advice; talk to your solicitor if you would like to learn more.)
