Leaving a gift in your will
Legacies can support specific areas of work like education or young singers, or contribute more generally towards the operatic enjoyment of future generations. Either way, they can make a unique memorial to a personal involvement with Glyndebourne.
Don’t forget the new government incentives, since April anyone who leaves at least 10 per cent of their estate to charity will have their inheritance tax reduced from 40 per cent to 36 per cent.
Legacies can be made by way of a gift of cash, shares or property and your solicitor can advise you on writing your will. As Glyndebourne Arts Trust is a registered charity (no. 208743) no inheritance tax is payable on the amount of your legacy. In certain situations this may be an effective way of reducing the tax liability of your estate whilst benefiting a favourite charity.

Our appreciation: the John Christie Society
In 1934, Glyndebourne was founded through the generosity and vision of Audrey Mildmay and John Christie. The international festival it has become today is a credit to their vision: ‘Not the best we can do but the best that can be done anywhere. To honour their legacy we have created the John Christie Society to recognise and thank generous and forward thinking individuals who are leaving Glyndebourne a gift in their will. In addition to the financial and tax benefits associated with legacies, John Christie Society members have the opportunity to become more involved with Glyndebourne.
