Leaving a Legacy
Leaving a Legacy
You may not have thought of including a gift to a Trust in your Will, but legacies form an important source of funding for our work. It is not just the wealthy who leave legacies to Trusts and Museums. Legacies of all sizes make a real difference to what we can do and your support can ensure the East Kent Nostalgic Bus & Coach Trust continues to proudly promote, celebrate and preserve our unique heritage.
How to leave a gift in your Will to East Kent Nostalgic Bus & Coach Trust
A legacy or bequest in your Will helps the Trust to use your gift where the need is greatest. There are 3 types of unrestricted legacies:
Residuary Legacy: This is a share (or all) of the remainder of your estate that can be given to East Kent Nostalgic Bus & Coach Trust once all other commitments have been settled.
Pecuniary Legacy: This is a fixed sum (for example £10,000) to East Kent Nostalgic Bus & Coach Trust. You can also opt for it to be indexed link to maintain its value in line with inflation.
Specific Legacy: This covers a broad range of legacies from royalties, stocks and shares to artefacts for East Kent Nostalgic Bus & Coach Trust collection. You can also nominate East Kent Nostalgic Bus & Coach Trust as a beneficiary under certain insurance policies - for example: life insurance or death in service.
East Kent Nostalgic Bus & Coach Trust is a charity and all gifts are tax exempt. By leaving your legacy to the Trust, your gift will benefit the Trust and be acknowledged wherever your legacy was used.
We strongly recommend you consult a qualified legal advisor when preparing or amending your Will.
