Thank you for considering leaving a gift to Cambridge Early Music in your Will. It is only with the generous support of individuals that we are able to undertake our exciting and ambitious series of concerts. A legacy gift will play an important and vital role in supporting our programme in the years ahead.

The process is simple and straightforward, but do take advice before proceeding. We recommend using a solicitor to ensure that your Will is legal and valid. If you have already written a Will, you can make a Note of Amendment or a Codicil.

To make sure the money goes to the right place, please include the following details: Cambridge Early Music, 80 Gwydir Street, Cambridge CB1 2LL. Registered Charitable Incorporated Organisation (Registration No. 1127932).

Making an unrestricted gift will support our core operating costs. However, if you want your gift to support a specific aspect of our work, please contact us to discuss the available options.

There are three main types of gift you can leave us in your Will, as shown below. For inheritance tax purposes, because Cambridge Early Music is a registered Charitable Incorporated Organisation, any donation you make will be deducted from your estate prior to inheritance tax being calculated.

  1. A specified sum of money, known as a ‘pecuniary gift’;
  2. Assets, such as stocks and shares, may also be gifted in a Will. Asset gifts to charities are Inheritance Tax exempt;
  3. A share of your estate, known as a ‘residuary gift’.
