Leaving a legacy in your will to Lady Manners School is one of the most meaningful and enduring gifts you can make. If and when the time is right for you to put a charity in your will, please remember us, especially if you have fond memories of your time spent at Lady Manners School. All legacies, whatever their size, will directly benefit the school and its students. For example, an original legacy of over £20,000 has provided all of our students gaining a place at Oxford with a scholarship for each year of their undergraduate studies.
As a registered charity, all gifts to Lady Manners School are completely free of inheritance tax and can include money, land, building or chattels. Leaving a legacy in your will can also reduce the amount of inheritance tax payable on the remainder of your estate. There are several different types of legacy that your solicitor can discuss with you when making a will, or including a codicil in an existing will. A summary of the different types of legacy can be found on the attached document, but advice should always be taken from either your solicitor or your financial advisor before making or changing your will.
