Marian Clarke Society

Marian Clarke Society

The Marian Clarke Society is an initiative of the Abbotsleigh Foundation and is managed by a bequests committee that acknowledges and celebrates the generosity of those who have notified us that they are leaving a gift in their will to Abbotsleigh.

You may prefer not to notify Abbotsleigh of the details of the gift you are making, or prefer to notify Abbotsleigh but keep your notification private. Your wishes will always be respected and we encourage you to talk to us about your requirements.

The President of the Marian Clarke Society is Penelope Thompson (past parent).

Gifts in wills

Leaving a gift in your will to Abbotsleigh is a very personal decision but is one that will make an enduring impact on the next generation. The generosity of Old Girls, parents and other members of our school community has enriched our educational facilities and made scholarships available to students who may not otherwise have benefited from an Abbotsleigh education.

The Abbotsleigh Foundation invests testimonial gifts prudently and ensures the utmost level of care, sensitivity and respect for your wishes.

Abbotsleigh camellias

The Abbotsleigh camellia was propagated to celebrate Abbotsleigh's centenary in 1985. Cultivated from the camellia japonica, the Abbotsleigh camellia has a large, white flower with a double layer of petals. All proceeds from sales of the camellia go to the Abbotsleigh Foundation.
