Making the most of Legacies
With pressures on church funding and the need to think about stewardship in the round, can your church afford to miss out on the millions of potential legacy income? But it is not just about the money. For over 500 years the Book of Common Prayer has encouraged Anglicans to make a Will as an expression of wise Christian stewardship.
A legacy gift is an opportunity to make perhaps the largest gift we ever make to our church and other charities. A legacy gift simply applies the principle of proportionate giving from what we have to our estate as well as our income.
