As someone who knows Queen’s College, we hope that you agree that the School offers its pupils an excellent academic education but also a good deal more. By remembering Queen’s College in your Will, you can help preserve this for others and extend the opportunity to talented pupils who could not otherwise afford a Queen’s College education and from whom Queen’s will benefit in return.
People make bequests for a variety of reasons. Sometimes they wish to fund the education of others less fortunate than themselves, or to maintain a particular building and grounds and enhance them for future generations. Making a bequest allows donors to do more than they might be able to do in their lifetime.
As Queen’s College is a registered charity, legacies to the school are free from inheritance tax and the gifts of shares and property are exempt from capital gains tax. A gift to Queen’s College will increase the threshold for inheritance tax on your estate by the full value of the gift and ensures that your money will go to a cause you support. Unless specified otherwise, we direct bequests to a specific project or use it to provide bursaries in the forthcoming years. However, please don’t forget to let us know your intentions as this can often encourage others to think along the same lines. Any pledge will remain confidential if you desire. If this is something you are considering, please contact Geoff Bisson in the Development Office for further support: firstname.lastname@example.org
