Help us continue to make a difference by leaving the Society a Legacy
The Bury Society needs financial assistance from people like you to continue its work. More than 80 percent of people contribute to the nonprofit groups of their choice throughout their lifetimes. But, according to research, only around eight percent of people chose to continue this support through a charitable bequest.
By making bequests and other planned gifts, you can continue to help us make an important difference in your community. What better way to thank an organisation that has had an impact on your life, than to make a contribution from your estate through a bequest?
Gifts large and small are important. Charitable giving is not only for the wealthy! Imagine how much good we could do if each of our members remembered the Bury Society in their Will or estate planning. The impact would be immeasurable.
How to give
A charitable bequest is simply a distribution from your estate to a charitable organisation through your last will and testament. There are different kinds of bequests. For each, you must use very specific language to indicate the precise direction of your assets, and to successfully carry out your final wishes. In any charitable bequest, be sure to name the recipient accurately. - in our case 'The Bury St Edmunds Society, charity number 263230.
Below, we have listed some of the more common kinds of bequests, and some bequest language. We always recommend that you carefully review the terms of your will with a professional trained in handling trusts and estates.
General Bequests are legacies left to certain people or causes that come from the general value of the estate, and are made by designating a specific amount, a particular asset or a fixed percentage of your estate to the cause of your choice.
Specific Bequests are made when a particular item or property is bequeathed for a designated purpose.
Residuary Bequests are made when you intend to leave the residue portion of your assets after other terms of the will have been satisfied.
Contingency Bequests allow you to leave a portion of your estate to a particular charity if your named beneficiary does not survive you.
