“I hope my legacy will help to make my community a better place for future generations.” – David Price’s giving story >
Leaving a gift in a Will can make a huge difference to local communities and there are many ways you can ensure your legacy counts.
As a charity, we welcome donations of any size towards our charitable activities, to promote community giving and build a lasting legacy to strengthen our communities.
Personal Funds are bespoke to your charitable wishes. You can choose the name of the fund or whether to remain anonymous, the geographical area of benefit in South Yorkshire, the charitable priorities and the level of involvement with giving.
Funds can either be endowment (where the capital sum is invested and the income used for grant making in perpetuity) creating a lasting legacy for South Yorkshire or Distribution Funds for immediate impact.
Personal Funds can be established from £25,000 and can be built up over a period of time.
Donations of any size can be made to existing geographical funds for Sheffield, Rotherham, Barnsley, Doncaster and South Yorkshire as a whole.
You can make an immediate contribution to your community with a life time gift, through a range of simple and effective giving options.
Pecuniary Legacy – is a fixed amount specified in your will. It is free of tax, which adds considerably to the value of your gift.
A Residuary Legacy – is the remaining value of your estate after all other bequests to family and friends have been made.
A Reversionary Legacy – allows family and friends to benefit from your estate during their lifetime and then for the balance of the estate to pass to the Community Foundation.
Specific – a particular item, such as shares, property or valuables, left to the Foundation will be free of inheritance tax.
SYCF makes it easy to leave a gift in any of these ways. Get in touch today with Maria Stuchbury, our Philanthropy Manager, to discuss giving a gift in your Will to your local community.
