Legacy Giving

What Legacy Will You Leave?


Making Your Mark

Through the generosity of Former Pupils, Parents, Staff and Supporters of the School, we have been able to support generations of young people who would otherwise not have had the opportunity to thrive, to make their mark on the world and in turn make a difference to the lives of others.

We truly believe that we can inspire our young people to reach their true potential, to become game changers and create a positive impact on our society. If you have been touched in some way by HSD - perhaps whilst you were a pupil, or through your interactions as an alumni, or whilst you were a member of our staff or even as a member of the wider community - we invite you to consider making the School a beneficiary in your will so that our young people can continue to thrive.

"I'm really happy to have made a legacy to the High School of Dundee, which I hope will benefit children for generations to come. It was easy to set up, tax free and the team in the Development Office were great, making the whole process smooth and straightforward."

Over the years, the School has evolved and grown to meet the ever-changing needs of our young people. We are committed to creating a vibrant hub where pupils have the best facilities to cultivate their education and shape their future.

Why I'm Leaving A Legacy

Now could be the perfect time to start thinking about what you would like to leave behind and create your own legacy. A planned gift could support a pupil in need and allow them to achieve their full potential. Likewise, support for our capital projects contributes towards amazing facilities for the benefit of generations to come.

It's never too early to start thinking about what you could leave behind. Now could be the perfect time to create your legacy.

"My family and I have all benefitted from an HSD education over the years. We had very different abilities and interests but each of us were able to find something that inspired our journey beyond the Pillars. I truly believe that without this influence we would not have had the confidence to pursue our dreams and be where we are today. For this reason, I have chosen to leave a legacy to contribute towards the lives of other families at our school."

Every Gift Counts

Leaving a planned gift is a very personal decision. After considering the needs of your family and loved ones, you might want to leave a gift to the School. Your gift can include a monetary donation, or a part of your estate, property, works of art, a policy or a trust.

When you leave a planned gift to HSD, you can specify how you would like your funds to be used, or let the School allocate the funds on your behalf. Are you interested in music, art or science? Perhaps you would like to support a certain area or activity. If you are unsure which area to support, you can direct your planned gift to a specific part of the curriculum, co-curriculum, the estate or the School in general (where we will direct your contribution to the area of greatest need).

Whether you would like to establish a fund in your name, or in the name of a loved one, or leave your gift anonymously please reach out to the Development Office who will be more than happy to talk through your gift intention so we are able to honour your wishes.
