The Nineveh Legacy Society

In many ways, providing for Canford in your Will is the greatest gift you can make to the school.  It signifies your belief in all that Canford stands for and creates an enduring testimony beyond your death.  

Providing for Canford in your will demonstrates a tremendous commitment on your part, one that we think should be honoured during your lifetime. We have established the Nineveh Legacy Society as a way to honour and thank those who remember Canford in their wills during their lifetime.

The school believes that recognition of such a commitment should not come through acts of remembrance alone.  To honour in their lifetimes those who have pledged a legacy to Canford, legators are gifted a Nineveh lapel pin and invited to join the Nineveh Legacy Society.   The Society is named in honour of the lasting legacy of the Assyrian Frieze brought from Nineveh by Sir Austen Henry Layard and the impact of this on the development of Canford.
