Leave a gift in your will
The history of Winchester Cathedral is testament to the generosity of past generations.
74% of the UK population supports charities like ours, and when asked, 35% of them say they’d be happy to leave a gift in their will once they’d provided for their family and friends. But only 7% actually do.
Anyone can leave a gift in their will – it is easy to do and you can leave a specific amount or a percentage of your overall estate. Gifts to charities are free from Inheritance Tax and, from 6 April 2012, if you leave 10% of your estate to charity the tax due may be paid at 36% instead of 40%.
