Legacies and donations are vital to enable us to continue our work on behalf of the independent heritage sector.

For general information on leaving a legacy and to see how the changes to Inheritance Tax have made it more attractive to support charities through legacy giving, please visit the Legacy10 website.
Legacy10 aims to encourage charitable giving in the United Kingdom by taking advantage of the change in inheritance tax rules to increase the number of people leaving money to charitable causes in their will. From April 2014, anyone leaving 10% of their taxable estate to charity will qualify for a reduced rate of inheritance tax. Currently The Heritage Alliance, the National Trust, Vivat Trust, War Memorials Trust, Institute of Historic Building Conservation, Country Houses Foundation, World Monuments Fund, Hereford Cathedral, Heritage Lottery Fund and Council for British Archaeology support the scheme from the heritage sector.
For more information on the financial benefit of leaving a gift in your will, please visit the HMRC website which provides links to further advice from other organisations including Citizens Advice and Age concern.
