A Gift in Your Will
Since its foundation in 1892, the Community of the Resurrection has been supported generously through bequests from those whose lives it has touched.
Over time this has enabled the Community to strengthen its daily life as well as undertaking exceptional projects – founding and then renovating the College of the Resurrection, supporting education and healthcare in Africa and the reordering of the Community’s church to name but a few.
As we look to the future, it is important that we resource the Community to ensure it can remain a constant praying presence and a place of hospitality, welcome and learning for a changing world and church. Making a gift to the Community of the Resurrection in your will is a way to support the Community as we look to the future.
There are many ways of supporting the Community’s works at home and abroad through a gift in your will.
You might consider:
- A Residual Gift
A proportion (or the whole) of your estate once expenses have been met.
- A Pecuniary Gift
A specified sum of money. The disadvantage of this is that the value of the gift may reduce with inflation.
- A Reversionary Gift
Assets can be left to the Community while allowing another individual to benefit from them during their lifetime.
- A Specific Gift
Personal possessions (for example, property, art or antiques) can be left to the Community.
Any gift made to the Community in your will can reduce liability for Inheritance Tax on your estate as well as being of enormous value to the Community of the Resurrection.
Making a gift to the Community of the Resurrection in your will is a way to support the Community for generations to come.
