  • Support us with a legacy

    You can give or bequeath to the MBS a sum of money, a share of your estate or specific assets, such as a portfolio of shares or a house. It is possible to leave us
    a collection or specific assets from your estate, which would not be liable for Inheritance Tax.

    It is possible to make a gift in the form of a residuary gift, whereby the MBS receives whatever is left of your estate after you have made specific bequests to your family and friends or other good causes.

    Because we are a charity, the value of any gift you make to the MBS in your will is deducted by the Inland Revenue from the value of your estate before any Inheritance Tax liability is calculated – so money that might otherwise have been paid in tax can instead be used to support the Trust in its work.

    If you are considering a gift or bequest and would like more information we are very happy to talk through the options. If you have already included the Trust in your will, we would appreciate being able to say thank you.
