The Devonshire Society

Eastbournian Society crestThe Devonshire Society was created in 2002 and is Eastbourne College's legacy club. Bequests made to the College help fund bursaries, awards and scholarships, as well as providing funds for capital projects.

If you tell us that you plan to make a bequest to Eastbourne College, and do not request anonymity, you will automatically become a member of the Society and will be invited every year with your spouse or partner to a Foundation day luncheon as a guest of the Headmaster.

If you are interested in making a bequest, please read our information booklet 'Your legacy'.

We were unable to host the Foundation Day lunch in 2020 or 2021 because of the Covid-19 pandemic, but we plan to resume in 2022, which will be the 20th anniversary year of the founding of the Devonshire Society.
