How to make a bequest

All these gifts are free from inheritance tax and capital gains tax.

The following statement can be used for incorporation into a Will or Codicil:

I bequeath to The Bellis Society of Cheltenham Ladies’ College (Registered Charity No 311722) the sum of £   ....... or ....... % of the residue of my estate absolutely for the advancement of Cheltenham Ladies’ College and I declare that the receipt of the Principal or other proper officer of the Society of College shall be sufficient discharge to my Trustees who shall not thereafter be concerned as to the application of this gift.

If you would like to modify an existing Will, it does need to be formally executed and legal advice should be sought.
