Guidance on leaving a legacy

It is easy to include a gift to St George’s Bristol in your will. You simply need to tell your solicitor the proportion you wish to give, and they can make a suitable provision. If you’ve already made a will, ask your solicitor about adding a Codicil to your existing will. We recommend you consult your solicitor before making any changes to your will; please see some guidance on the gifts you can make below.

There are 3 main types of gift you can make:


A share in, or all of, what’s left of the value of your estate after family and friends have been taken care of. The advantage of leaving a share is that it stays the same over time and you won’t need to change your will to keep up with inflation.


A fixed sum of money


An item such as a building, or piece of art

“I’ve chosen to leave a gift in my will to St George’s Bristol so that future generations can continue to enjoy the varied programme of high-quality music that they offer. With cutbacks in Government spending towards music and education placing an ever-increasing burden on charities, I would like St George’s to use my gift to share the joy of music and enable its healing and inspirational effect for all audiences to play, listen and be inspired.”Anonymous

“Over the years it has been a delight to see St George’s develop, both as a venue and artistically. We owe a real debt to those who had the original vision for the building and worked so hard to realise it but also to those whose generosity made it possible financially. It seems only appropriate for us to leave something behind in our turn so that our children and future generations can continue to enjoy this remarkable place” John and Margrit Waldron
