Legacies and The 1845 Society
Membership of the 1845 Society, named after the year in which the College was founded, is open to all those who have pledged a legacy gift to Brighton College. The purpose of the Society is to encourage legacy giving and to give the College the opportunity to honour and thank Legacy givers in their lifetime, maintaining their connection with the school in perpetuity. Members of the 1845 Society are invited to attend an annual lunch at the College, to meet fellow legacy pledgers and to keep up to date with schooldevelopments and plans.
Remembering Brighton College in your Will
A legacy to Brighton College is your opportunity to support the education of future generations, helping to provide first class resources for teaching and learning, and to make a Brighton College education available to as many deserving young people as possible.
There are a number of reasons that our benefactors choose to give, whether to express gratitude for the education they received, to impact upon future generations who may not otherwise have the opportunity of a private education, or to honour the name of a loved one. Whatever the reason may be, as a benefactor you can feel safe in the knowledge that your legacy will allow pupils to benefit from an education that will shape their future.
You can leave a legacy for Brighton College to invest wherever the need is greatest. Or, alternatively, we also welcome gifts that are focused around a personal passion or interest, such as sport or art.

The Benefits of Legacy Giving
Many who are unable to give as much as they would like in their lifetime, find a legacy gift can be an attractive alternative. As Brighton College is a registered charity, any bequest, whether it takes the form of cash, shares or property, will normally be exempted from tax. The value of a legacy to Brighton College will be deducted from your estate before any tax liability is calculated, and may even result in your estate paying no tax at all.
