Olivier Bequest Appeal

The Olivier Bequest Appeal


With the ever-diminishing contribution of the State to the cost of running Maritzburg College, it becomes increasingly incumbent on Old Boys and the wider College Community to ensure the sustainability and development of our great school, its values and standards, for future Collegians. I have made this commitment. – Mr Keith Olivier

Maritzburg College has a proud and distinguished history and has long been regarded as one of the premier boys’ high schools in South Africa.

The voices of some of our country’s most prominent sportsmen, academics, business leaders and social entrepreneurs have echoed throughout these walls. New generations of young men of the highest calibre continue to be moulded by the traditions and ethos of our fine school.

We recognise the importance of Maritzburg College as an education institution, as well as the invaluable role that it has played in the lives of the countless Old Boys and College families since its inception in 1863. Maritzburg College will undoubtedly continue to play a pivotal role in the future success of our youth, our communities and our country.


Your Legacy for the Future

At the Maritzburg College Foundation, we understand that making a bequest needs to be a carefully considered decision. It is your opportunity to support a cause that you believe in. It is your chance to create a legacy that will honour you, your family or someone you hold dear.

A bequest is a gift or a consideration drawn from the sum total of your final assets, designated to go to a particular person or organisation after your death.

There are many areas to which you may direct your gift and many ways you can support Maritzburg College.


A bequest provides the opportunity to

  • Establish a scholarship to support a talented and deserving College boy
  • Help advance the quality of education at College
  • Preserve or improve our infrastructure to create a first-class campus and learning environment

No matter where you choose to place your support, your legacy will have an important impact on Maritzburg College with far-reaching positive consequences.
