Looking after all our kids

Making a Will and leaving a Bequest to Mount Scopus Memorial College

Planning your estate is about looking after the people you care about. If Mount Scopus College has been part of your life, you may wish to continue helping all our families to have access to a world class Jewish and secular education.

All Bequests, unless specifically indicated, will go towards building our Foundation's Future Fund.

You can read more about it below. A gift included in your estate, whether a percentage of your assets, a fixed sum, or a specific item such as a work of art, will have an enormous impact on our school community, and give you the opportunity to create your family legacy.

Bequests would normally be considered unrestricted. Bequests to the Mount Scopus College Foundation, however, can be directed to a particular program or project at the College.

The Future Fund

Our Endowment Fund

While we fundraise every year for the short-term needs of the College, we must also be planning for the next generation of Scopus families.
Our Endowment Fund, called the “Future Fund” has been set up to look after our families for the future.
We aim to build the Future Fund so that, in time, it can reduce fees for all parents.
It is our policy to put 10% of Foundation funds and 100% of all bequests to grow this Future Fund.
If you would like to join us in this vision, please make contact with us through the Foundation office, by calling (03) 9834 0065 or email us at foundation@scopus.vic.edu.au

Foundation investment Committee:

  • David Gold
  • Sam Alter
  • Stewart Baron
  • Ruth Picker
