Gifting a Legacy

Cup & Ring iconLeaving a legacy for future generations after you have gone is a great gift – it can be as straightforward as including a simple sentence in your will. If you leave a gift to a charity in your will, its value will be deducted from your estate before inheritance tax is worked out.

It is possible for the inheritance tax rate to be reduced to 36 per cent if 10 per cent or more of an estate is left to charity. Taking advantage of this reduced rate would require advice from a solicitor. Gifts made up to seven years before your death may also qualify for exemption.

We deeply appreciate your planned giving. Through your generosity, that which you hold close to your heart is supported long after you have gone. Gifting a legacy helps and gives security as we move forward in our work to end the era of Ecocide.
