Legacies can benefit your estate as well as the College.

  • A legacy gift to a charity such as Lucy Cavendish College is exempt from tax in the UK
  • If you leave at least 10% of your taxable estate to charity, the Inheritance Tax rate for the rest of your estate decreases from 40% to 36%. In effect you may be able to leave more to charity while reducing the impact on your loved ones’ inheritance.
