Bequests – The Fidelis Society

Leave a mark for future generations of Ivanhoe Grammarians through a bequest to the School

The Fidelis Society was established to recognise and thank those who have made a bequest to the School and to encourage others to do the same.

‘My journey with Ivanhoe Grammar School commenced in 1941 as a very young student (my father was a First Day pupil in 1915) and has continued to be part of my life. As a parent, and a former member of the Board of Governors I have seen what the generosity of those who have a genuine affection of the School has meant to the quality of education the School now offers. Buildings, scholarships and other facilities on both campuses have been provided through bequests. Seeing what a difference this has made to the life and outcomes of our students has determined that I also will be leaving a portion of my estate to the School.’ – John Knorr, Captain of School, ‘52

Your bequest however large or small will make a huge difference to the lives of future students. Membership to the Fidelis Society is open to anyone who has indicated a bequest to the School. Members are invited to significant school events and receive a distinctive gold lapel pin.
