About the legacy10campaign

Legacy10 is an independent campaign, launched in November 2011, to encourage charitable giving in the United Kingdom.

The campaign aims to take advantage of the change in inheritance tax rules to increase the number of people leaving money to charitable causes in their will. From April this year, anyone leaving 10% of their taxable estate to charity will qualify for a reduced rate of inheritance tax. Although Legacy10 is a registered charity, we will not collect or distribute funds directly.
