Leaving a Legacy

Leaving a gift to charity in your will is the perfect way for your generosity to last beyond your own lifetime.  A legacy to the Cumbria Community Foundation is a simple way in which individuals can leave money to the local community in which they may have lived and worked for many years.  When you leave a legacy to us, you are leaving a lasting gift that will support deserving causes that meet criteria that you set for many years to come.

You choose who you want to help (we can advise if needed) and then leave it to us to carry out your wishes.  All grants will be given in the name of your fund.

All legacies left to Cumbria Community Foundation are exempt from inheritance tax.
