Leaving a Legacy

As a charity, we depend on the generosity of the general public, Friends of the trust and trustees. There are many ways that you can donate to the trust, including leaving a legacy.

Leaving a legacy is a great way of ensuring that the churches and chapels you care for are preserved and maintained for years to come and future generations.

Not only are you giving a fantastic gift to the Trust so that we can care for churches across Yorkshire, but it is also a way of saying thank you to the churches and chapels where you have worshiped and enjoyed visiting.

The Trust will spend any legacies bequeathed over a specified time frame, dependent on the amount. Please contact us for more information on the policy,

Whatever your wishes, get in touch with us today and see how your legacy can live on through the trust.

The wording for the legacy in your will should be as follows:

“I GIVE the sum of …………………… free from all taxes to the Yorkshire Historic Churches Trust (Registered Charity Number 700639) for its general purposes AND I DECLARE that the receipt of the Treasurer or other duly authorised officer of the Yorkshire Historic Churches Trust shall be a sufficient discharge to my executors and trustees”.
