A Gift in your Will
You may not have thought of including a gift to the Sudbury Common Lands in your Will, but legacies form an important source of funding for our work – no gift is too small. You can ensure that future generations enjoy enjoy the Sudbury Common Lands as much as you have. You may feel that you would like to support us but have other priorities at the moment, in which case a legacy gift is an opportunity to make a lasting contribution with no immediate financial outlay. Leaving a legacy can also be tax-effective as gifts to charities are exempt from inheritance tax. You do not need to have lots of money to donate, all legacies are welcome and can be put to good use, be it £10 or £100,000.
A Will is an excellent way to remember a charity which is important to you. It is extremely simple to leave something in your Will to the Sudbury Common Lands. All you need to do is include the following words: ‘I give the [sum of / residue of my estate] to the Trustees of the Sudbury Common Lands Charity, Sudbury, Suffolk … absolutely for its general charitable purposes. I declare that the receipt of the Clerk for the time being of Sudbury Common Lands shall be a sufficient discharge to my Executor.’
We strongly recommend that you consult your legal advisor when making or altering your Will. Leaving a legacy is possibly the most personal gift anyone can make to the Sudbury Common Lands Charity. We record and recognise all such gifts in the most appropriate manner, usually through an acknowledgement in the Annual Review. We will be happy to discuss any queries you may have about leaving a legacy.
