Legacy giftsA legacy gift in your will represents a very great honour for The Art Room. Do please let us know if you have left or are considering leaving a bequest. While we are not able to provide advice in writing your will, we can provide an outline of the main types of legacy gift as well as suggested wording.
email Kate Longworth for more information
From 6 April 2012, any estate which leaves at least 10% of its taxable wealth to a charitable cause will be able to take advantage of a reduced rate in IHT, from its normal level of 40% down to 36%. What this means in practice is the benefit to a charitable cause will be four times greater than the cost to the estate’s beneficiary, as HMRC will shoulder the burden of 76 pence for every pound donated, whereas the estate pays only 24 pence.
For those people who are already planning to leave a legacy, the new rules result in a breakeven level of 4% (of taxable wealth) – i.e. there is no greater cost to the beneficiary if the estate donates 4% or 10% of the taxable wealth to charity.
Gifts of art materialsA key part of The Art Room methodology is the professional-grade quality of the materials used in the sessions. They send a clear message of confidence in and esteem for the children and young people.
We are always happy to receive donations of the following materials:
Old foreign coins
Children’s picture books
Art materials such as acrylic paints, brushes etc.
If you have any materials and are unsure as to whether we will be able to use them then do please get in touch by email or phone at 01865 779 779.
