How to leave a gift in your Will
Leave a lasting legacy
This month, Glyndebourne has partnered with will-writing specialists Farewill to offer you the opportunity to make a will for free. To take advantage of this offer, please click the button below.
Key Information for your solicitor
If you decide to leave a gift to Glyndebourne your solicitor will need our charity name, address and registered charity number:
Glyndebourne Productions Limited, Lewes, East Sussex, BN8 5UU
Registered Charity Number 243877
Did you know?
If you leave 10% or more of the value of your taxable estate to charity, not only is the gift itself exempt from IHT but the remaining estate is subject to IHT at 36% rather than 40%.
Gifts from USA
If you are a US citizen or resident, you can leave a gift through Glyndebourne America, which is fully deductible for US estate tax purposes.
Residuary gift: you can leave the remainder of your estate or a percentage, once family and friends have been provided for.
Pecuniary or cash gift: a fixed sum donation
We would encourage you to leave a gift that can be used wherever it is most needed at the point it is received by Glyndebourne, but we also understand that you may wish for your gift to benefit an area of our work that is important to you.
If you would like to discuss please contact our Development Manager, Tanya Richardson, for a confidential conversation on +44 (0)1273 815 419 or email email@example.com.
How we say thank you – the John Christie Society
To honour the vision of Audrey Mildmay and John Christie, in 2009 we created the John Christie Society to recognise and thank those generous and forward-thinking individuals who are remembering Glyndebourne with a gift in their will.
Members of The John Christie Society are recognised annually in the Festival Programme Book and have the opportunity to deepen their involvement with Glyndebourne through invitations to events in the Festival and autumn programme.
‘By joining the John Christie Society I feel I am part of the organisation and the money I have left will help to carry on the philosophy of John and Audrey Mildmay who started such a wonderful organisation.’
