Leaving a legacy for future generations of Cass students

New Legacy Giving Programme supports development of the School

Tuesday, 14 December, 2010

Cass recently received the first legacy pledge from a generous alumnus Bryn Rowlands who studied an MBA in 1980.  Explaining his decision to pledge a legacy, Mr Rowlands said: "Providing a legacy to Cass Business School allows me to contribute, even in a small way, to a world class British educational institution. I believe this will help maintain a peaceful and positive aspect of our country, from which both home and foreign students will benefit."

The Legacy Giving Programme has been launched at Cass for alumni and friends of the School who would like to leave gifts in their wills.  Such contributions will support the School’s long-term financial security and the prospects of students who may not have the financial resources to pay for their business school education.

Gifts of any size will make a difference, and unrestricted gifts are highly valuable to the School as they enable us to direct funds to areas where they are most needed.  The gifts will be used in three ways:

Student Support : A legacy in support of scholarships will ensure that all eligible students can study at Cass, regardless of their financial circumstances.

Faculty and Research: A legacy in support of our faculty and research will help us to attract internationally renowned academic staff and support our top-ranked research centres.

Campus Facilities: A legacy in support of our campus will help us to optimise our central location in London.

Paolo Barbarino, Director of Development and External Relations at Cass, said: When you donate to the Cass Legacy Programme you contribute to the School’s long-term financial security and the prospects of countless students.  The Fund has been established so that far-sighted donors can help us by supporting prospective students, research and teaching at the School.
