Planned giving

Bruce House Society 

The Bruce House Society is a planned giving program which recognizes those who have made arrangements to include ASL in their estate plans or have given a portion of their estate to ASL. Established in 2006, the Bruce House Society is named for ASL benefactor David K. Bruce, US Ambassador from 1961-69, who was instrumental in helping ASL acquire and develop the St. John’s Wood campus.

Society members play an essential role in ensuring ASL’s mission continues to thrive in all that we do – from our financial health to our tradition of academic excellence.

With a planned gift, you can make an impactful contribution to ASL today and to future generations of students. All individuals who share their intentions to include ASL in their estate plans are recognized with membership in the Bruce House Society.

As a member, you will:

  • Be invited to annual events in London and in the US
  • Be listed in ASL’s Accents magazine and in the Annual Report
  • Receive a special pin as a symbol of our appreciation for your membership

Your willingness to be listed as a member in the Bruce House Society encourages others to follow in your example. We acknowledge and respect the confidentiality of those who wish to remain anonymous and ask that you let us know of your plans so that the School can best direct the giving per your intentions and interests.

Unless you advise and designate your intentions, all planned gifts, when received, will be added to ASL’s general endowment to ensure that your gift supports ASL for years to come.

To signal your planned giving and be recognized in the Bruce House Society, we ask you to please complete the membership form using one of the tabs below.

Long-serving faculty member Steve Cary is
including ASL in his estate plans

From the moment Steve Cary was drawn to ASL to cover a faculty absence in 1991, he became a mainstay of our school. Throughout a 24-year career at ASL, involving teaching performing arts, Grade 3 and finally keeping things running smoothly in the Lower School Library, his focus was on optimizing the learning experiences of our students. At the time of his retirement in 2015, Steve commented, “Over the years, my relationships and interactions with faculty, staff, parents and students helped me develop both as an educator and as a global citizen.” We are honored to report that Steve has included a gift to ASL in his estate planning.
