Leaving a Legacy
Leaving a gift to Elmhurst in your Will is a special way to ensure that we can continue to offer the highest standard of dance training, combined with a strong academic education and a caring environment to the professional dancers of tomorrow. Leaving a legacy won’t cost you anything right now and will help to ensure Elmhurst’s future as a world-renowned centre of excellence for the training and education of dancers.
All legacies, whether big or small, make a valuable contribution to Elmhurst’s work; from supporting a disadvantaged student’s training, to developing our outreach programme with West Midlands’ schools.
Any size of gift will be very gratefully received. Most people choose to leave either a pecuniary legacy
, which is a specific amount of money, a particular item, or a residuary legacy
, which is the remainder or a percentage of the remainder of your estate once family and friends have been taken care of.
If you have already made a Will...
but would like to leave a gift to Elmhurst, you can do so by making a simple addition to your existing Will. This is called a codicil. This document is a supplement to your Will enabling you to include new instructions and delete old ones without having to go through the task of rewriting the whole Will.
If you have not already made a Will…
we advise that you visit a solicitor to seek advice about how to make a Will. Solicitors will charge a fee, but you will receive sound professional advice and can be sure that your wishes are accurately reflected.
If you’ve already left us a gift, please let us know as we would like to thank you during your lifetime.
Elmhurst School for Dance is a registered charity, no 1040286.
