Legacies and bequests

We love our shed, and what it brings to our community.

 

Our ultimate goal is that the Shed can continue to support people in East Kent through all our activities that help promote the health and well-being of our members long term.

Every year, we have to raise a significant amount of funding to be able to do that. With no regular funding from 3rd parties, we raise as much money as we can ourselves, through making, mending, and selling products and fundraising activities.

 

However, to make the project sustainable for both existing and new members we have not yet met too, we now have in place a Legacy and Bequest scheme to help.

 

If you would like to pledge a donation, no matter how small in your will, leave a footprint in the future and make significant difference to members of The Shed, we would be honoured and grateful to be remembered and supported in this way.

 

If you do not yet have a will, you should consider making one. It is the only way to make sure your money; property, possessions and investments (known as your estate) go to the people and causes you care about.

Here are the government guidelines to gifts in wills:

 

Your will says what will happen to your money, property and possessions after you die.   Your donation will either:

 

 

 

  • be taken off the value of your estate before Inheritance Tax is calculated
  • reduce your Inheritance Tax rate, if 10% or more of your estate is left to charity

 

 

 

You can donate:

 

  • a fixed amount
  • an item
  • what’s left after other gifts have been given out

 

 

 

The Shed is a project from Broadstairs Town Team Ltd., which is a local volunteer run community charity.

 

They manage all the finance for the Broadstairs Town Shed but keep funding absolutely separate for each of the projects they manage and deliver for the town.

 

Any and all gifts and legacy donations in your will for The Shed will benefit the Shed project on
