“I hope my legacy will be to help make Calderdale a better place for future generations”.

We at the Community Foundation for Calderdale can help you do this.  As an accredited charitable foundation working at the heart of the community for over 25 years, we channel funds to local frontline charities and voluntary groups meeting important community needs.

Once they have made provision for family and loved ones, many of our supporters generously include a gift for us in their Will.  Such gifts are essential fuel for our beneficial work in the community, now and in future.

A gift in a Will:

  • can support causes you are most interested in or concerned about, or else we can allocate it to the most pressing current needs, depending on your preference
  • can be small or large, as a percentage of your Estate or a fixed sum gift, and tax-efficient (gifts to us qualify as charitable donations and so are exempt from Inheritance Tax, which could help reduce the total amount of tax paid on your Estate)
  • can be distributed to local causes quickly and/or over the long term.

Your solicitor and ourselves can support you in reviewing these options.

It’s easy to remember the Community Foundation for Calderdale in your Will, to help make Calderdale a better place for future generations.  Please contact Ian Leedham if you would like to discuss this further:
