Making the gift of a lifetime
For those who valued their time at Queen's, a legacy is a wonderful way of giving something back, as well as a means of providing for future generations. Large or small, a gift in your Will can help support the College as a whole or be directed to a particular aspect of College life with which you have an affinity. For example, you may choose for your gift to support bursaries for bright and talented girls who without financial assistance would not otherwise be able to attend the College, or to be directed towards maintaining our excellent facilities and teaching. The College is happy to work with donors to create giving opportunities specifically tailored to their personal areas of interest and financial situations.
Discussing your plans
If you are considering leaving a gift to Queen's in your Will, thank you. A Will is a personal matter and we understand if you would prefer to keep your intentions private. However, it would be a great help if you were to let the College know of your plans, as this ensures that we are able to thank you in person and keep you informed about the impact that your gift will make, as well as keep you up-to-date with developments at the College.
We would be pleased to discuss your intentions with you, regardless of whether you consider your gift to be large or small. Please rest assured that this does not commit you in any way and that all discussions and correspondence will be treated in the strictest confidence. Please contact our Development Office, on 020 7291 7018 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Making a bequest to Queen's can lessen the burden of inheritance tax on your estate. We advise those who wish to leave a legacy to the College to seek professional advice about minimising the taxation burden on their estate, as well as on the wording of their Will, in order to ensure that their intentions are properly recorded.
