Legacies

The Boat Museum Society welcomes legacies to help fund its work in continuation of its objectives.  As the legacies are given to a charity they are exempt from Inheritance Tax.

As circumstances change over the years it may not be possible to fulfil specific donor requests such as the preservation of a particular boat, so anyone wishing to leave a gift to BMS in his/her will should use the words “I give the sum of £…….. to The Boat Museum Society for the general purposes of the society.”

When the will takes effect the Trustees of the society will discuss with executors the most appropriate use of the gift  in the light of current needs and projects and the donor’s known areas of interest in the work of the society.

Thank you
