Legacies

Leaving a gift to St Gregory’s Foundation in your will is a very special way of making a lasting improvement to the lives of disadvantaged people in Russia and the former Soviet Union.

Mrs Helen Dixon

We are very grateful to supporters such as Mrs Helen Dixon, whose generous legacy enabled our partner charity in Tbilisi to buy a permanent home for their work with teenage orphans.  Other smaller legacies have sometimes made it possible to continue projects through difficult times.  However large or small, legacy gifts are hugely appreciated.

How to include St Gregory’s Foundation in your will

Giving a legacy to a charity is a simple and tax efficient way of contributing.  As a registered charity, we do not pay tax on your gift, and leaving a legacy to charity may benefit your estate by reducing the amount liable for inheritance tax.

Your existing Will may be amended by simply adding a codicil.  Alternatively, the gift can be included in any revision of your Will that may become necessary from time to time. In either case, if you do amend your Will you are strongly recommended to obtain the assistance of your solicitor.

Our needs change over time, and so we would encourage you to leave your gift “for general purposes”, which means that we will be able to use it where it can do the most good.

If you are planning to include St Gregory’s Foundation in your will, we would encourage you to let us know, so that we can thank you and make sure that you are kept informed about our work.
