Leave a Legacy
Please remember us in your will
We are fortunate to live, work or visit such an extraordinary city and if Bath has been a special place in your life then leaving a gift to Bath Preservation Trust in your Will is one way of ensuring the city and our museums are there to be enjoyed by future generations.
Since our beginnings in 1934, Bath Preservation Trust has received several remarkable gifts and legacies including several generous bequests from local residents recently. As we receive no public funding for core activities all gifts and bequests are a vital part of our income and ensure we can continue our campaigning work to protect our historic city. They also help us manage our four museums, which are the city’s only museums which explain Bath’s Georgian development, and provide the means to run a highly successful and award winning education programme. The Trust will therefore be very grateful for any contribution that you are able to make through a legacy.
As Bath Preservation Trust is a charity, bequests left to us are exempt from Inheritance Tax. In addition, a legacy of 10% or more of your net estate to charities such as Bath Preservation Trust will reduce the rate of Inheritance Tax payable on the rest of your estate from 40% to 36%. To find out more about this benefit, please speak to your solicitor.
We will never ask about the contents of your Will but if you do plan to leave a bequest to Bath Preservation Trust please let us know so we have the opportunity to thank you for your support.
Do pick up one of our legacy leaflets and if you would like further details or a confidential discussion regarding leaving a bequest to Bath Preservation Trust, please contact us on 01225 338727 or in writing to 1 Royal Crescent, Bath, BA1 2LR.
