Leave a Legacy
In recent years, the Sheffield Botanical Gardens Trust has been fortunate to receive several legacies from generous supporters including Mrs Barbara Holland, Miss Mildred Rushby and Mrs Dorothy Fox. Without these substantial legacies it would not have been possible to build a permanent education building.
We use legacies and donations and money raised from fundraising to ensure that the Gardens are kept in the finest state and to support new initiatives.
As the Trust is a charity, any legacy left to it is free of inheritance tax. Legacies, of any size, are tremendously valuable and very gratefully received.
During 2016, the Sheffield Botanical Gardens Trust became a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) with a new charity number 1162566. The original Registered Charity (1057845) is now linked to the new CIO – but it is much better for supporters to now quote the new charity number (1162566) when preparing any legal documents such as wills.
To help supporters who may be thinking of this form of planned giving, the Trust has prepared a brochure which provides more information and suggested wordings for you to discuss with your solicitor.
