Bequests and Donations

How You Can Help the Society by Leaving a Legacy (Bequest)

(i) Bequests

The Anatomical Society is a learned society with charitable status dedicated to developing and promoting research and education in the anatomical sciences. We are always grateful for the receipt of legacies (bequests) to help further our charitable aims. Bequests can be made in memoriam. Legacies to the Society benefit from being exempt from inheritance tax: this may reduce or eliminate completely any potential tax that might otherwise be payable out of your estate.

The commonest types or legacy are either Pecuniary, where the gift is a specific sum of money, or  Residuary, where the gift is of all or part of an estate after all other pecuniary legacies have been paid.

An open legacy towards the general purposes of the Society is preferable, because it allows us to apply the funds donated to purposes for which the need is greatest at the time the legacy becomes available. However, a legacy may also be made for a specific purpose, such as funding a research studentship or travel scholarships or specific educational awards.
