“The Augusta Society” An invitation to make a Bequest to MAGS 1


MOUNT ALBERT GRAMMAR SCHOOL FOUNDATION

Remembering MAGS through a Bequest “The Augusta Society” is the Mount Albert Grammar School Foundation Bequest programme. Membership of the “Augusta Society” makes it possible for beneficiaries to be recognised and thanked during their lifetime. Bequests will play a significant role in the establishment of the $10 million Endowment Fund for MAGS which is intended to provide long-term benefits to the School. To become a member of “The Augusta Society,” the MAGS Foundation needs to receive notification of your Bequest in writing from your solicitor.

Message from the MAGS Foundation Chairman

Message from the Director of Advancement

On behalf of the MAGS Foundation, I invite you to contribute to the ongoing success of the School by making a Bequest to the MAGS Foundation in your Will. As a State school, we need greatly increased financial support from our entire MAGS community to continue our success into our second century. By making a Bequest to the MAGS Foundation, you will be investing in the ongoing excellence of our School for the benefit of the generations to come. Peter Thorp

To remember MAGS through a Bequest is a way to make a permanent statement about the value of education. With the help of people with conviction and commitment, MAGS will be able to make a lasting difference to the lives and future of many MAGS students. “The Augusta Society” is the Mount Albert Grammar School Foundation’s Bequest programme. Membership of the Augusta Society by making a Bequest in your Will is perhaps the most personal commitment you can make towards the future of others. By joining those who have made a Bequest to MAGS, you can take satisfaction from knowing that you are part of an important legacy. Tim Kay 3
