Leaving a Legacy Remembering the GOJJJ Leaving a legacy in your Will is one of the most enduring gifts you can make, and ensures that future generations continue to have access to the outstanding music-making of the Orchestra. When the time is right for you to include a gift in your Will, please remember us. Every contribution, large or small, is deeply appreciated and will make a difference to the future of the GOJJJ. By making this lasting commitment, you will be leaving your own musical legacy for future generations to enjoy. How to leave a legacy to the GOJJJ Leaving a gift to the GOJJJ in your Will is easy to arrange and is one of the most flexible ways of giving. When considering your gift or writing your Will, we recommend that you seek the advice of a professional advisor who will be able to provide detailed guidance on the various types of legacy gifts. For example, you may wish to leave the GOJJJ a proportion of your residuary estate, a specific sum, or the gift of an asset, such as stocks and shares. If you have already written your Will and wish to include a gift to the GOJJJ, you can simply make an addition by including a codicil, or note of amendment, to your existing Will. Unrestricted legacy gifts are invaluable to the GOJJJ, and are by preference directed to the GOJJJ Endowment Trust to help build a secure future for the Orchestra. We would be pleased to provide some suggested wording for your Will, and to answer any questions you might have about leaving a legacy gift to the GOJJJ. Benefits As the GOJJJ Endowment Trust is a registered charity, a legacy gift to the Orchestra will be deducted from your estate before inheritance tax is calculated, thereby reducing the overall amount of inheritance tax payable.
