Inaugural commitment to our Olivier Bequest Appeal

Posted Friday July 26, 2019 by College Giving



Earlier this year the College Foundation launched the Olivier Bequest Appeal, an initiative offering College Old Boys and College faithful the opportunity to leave a lasting legacy to College via a gift in their wills.

The inaugural commitment to our Olivier Bequest Appeal was recently received from Mr Hugh Raw, a College Old Boy from the Class of 1958!

Those who know Hugh will attest to the fact that his love for family, the outdoors and canoeing is matched only by his passion for Maritzburg College.

Hugh is proud of their 3-generation legacy (so far, he adds!). His two sons Darron (OC88) and Shane (OC91) both attended College and Hugh can still be seen these days cheering his 3 College grandsons on from the sidelines.

Through a codicil to his will Hugh has provided for a generous sum to be donated to College to further the development of our Alma Mater.  As funding for capital projects and/or the provision of scholarships to deserving College boys this commitment will strengthen the focus on changing lives and shaping futures for all our boys.

On behalf of the College Foundation and the Olivier Bequest Appeal we would like to extend our deepest appreciation to Hugh and his family for this investment in our College future.
