Leaving A Legacy

Foundations Derbyshire

When it comes to making a Will, more and more people want their estate to help family and friends and also make a difference to their local community or those less fortunate than themselves.

Keeping it local

Having decided to leave a gift in your Will, the most difficult question is often, which charity to choose. Foundation Derbyshire provides a simple solution, as we fund local community groups and charities across the county that are providing vital support and services.

Local, smaller groups and organisations are often perceived as being less permanent than larger or national charities and you may be concerned that the charity or cause you want to support may no longer be in existence or in need of assistance by the time your will comes into effect.

We can help, ensuring your gift will continue to support the issues and areas that you care about, even if a particular organisation no longer exists.

Including Foundation Derbyshire in your Will is a way of giving something of real and lasting value back to your own community.  By deciding to leave us a gift now, you will be helping local people long into the future.

We never forget that every fund is different, so please contact us to find out more or if there’s anything you’d like to discuss with us.

All enquiries will be treated in the strictest confidence.

Can I specify which issues or communities I want to support?

You can specify the issues or a geographical area that you want to support or leave it up to our expert team to direct the income to meet the most pressing needs in the community.

Can I nominate a particular charity that will benefit?

You can identify specific charities that will benefit, including national or international charitable organisations.

Will a donation to the Foundation in my Will be tax efficient?

Like all legacies to charity, a gift to Foundation Derbyshire is tax-free and could reduce the total amount of tax paid on your estate.

Can my legacy gift be used to start a Named Fund?

You can specify Foundation Derbyshire as the beneficiary or specify the creation of a fund in your name or another name of your choosing. If you so wish, your family and/or professional advisors can then be involved in awarding grants from your fund.
