Legacy Giving FAQs

What are the different ways to leave a gift to charity in my Will?

A pecuniary gift is a fixed amount of money and a specific gift is a specified item, such as jewellery or shares. A residuary gift is a percentage of the rest of your estate after all other gifts and payments have been made. Many people choose to leave a residuary gift to charity as it won’t lose value over time and they can make sure their loved ones are looked after first.

Are there any tax benefits to leaving a gift to charity in my Will?

Gifts to charity are free of inheritance tax. Leaving a gift to charity in your Will could also reduce the rate of inheritance tax paid on your estate. A solicitor or HMRC can tell you more.

Is making or changing a Will expensive?

Not at all. We’ve partnered with JonesWhyte incorporating McClure Solicitors Est. 1853, who offer a free Will-writing service. Please get in touch with us to find out more.

Can a gift in my Will really make a difference to The British Horse Society?

Our work would simply not be possible without the kind gifts supporters leave us in their Wills. By remembering The British Horse Society in your Will, you could help protect and care for horses and riders for generations to come.
