Leaving a Legacy
The gift of a lifetime
For many, leaving a legacy is a joyful experience as we remember those people and experiences that have had the greatest impact on our lives.
As a charity, Orwell Park depends upon the philanthropy of our alumni and friends to sustain our work, and legacies form a huge part of supporting this ongoing need.
We would be glad to discuss your preferences with you as you consider leaving a gift to Orwell Park in your will. Please get in touch with Development & Alumni Relations Manager Amy Carbonero by email or phone (01473 653228) to arrange a time to speak.
What you can support: When you make a gift, you can choose to support a specific project or leave an unrestricted gift so that your gift can be used where it is needed most.
How to begin the process of making a will: It is always advisable to have your will written by a solicitor experienced in Wills and Probate.
How to add a gift to an existing will: A form called a codicil can be added to your will by a solicitor. Visit http://solicitors.lawsociety.org.uk/ to find a solicitor locally. There are many kinds of gifts you can leave – pecuniary gifts (cash) and residuary gifts (a share of an estate) are the most common. You can also gift property such as photographs, art and books.
Understanding Inheritance Tax: HMRC provide guidance on Inheritance Tax (www.gov.uk/inheritance-tax), and a solicitor will be able to go through the financial detail for your particular situation.
