A legacy is one of the simplest and most flexible ways of making a gift, and allows you to support the Orchestra in a way in which you may not be able to during your lifetime.
Consider including us in your will to help ensure the Orchestra keeps producing worldclass music for generations to come. We encourage you to speak to a solicitor when writing your will or codicil.
The tax benefits of such a gift are considerable – the only people who can benefit without your estate being liable to inheritance tax are legal spouses and charities. Oxford Philomusica is a registered charity, so all bequests can be made free from inheritance tax. Further more, at the current rate, if you leave 10 per cent of your estate to charity, your overall Inheritance Tax due may be paid at a reduced rate of 36 per cent instead of 40 per cent.
Your bequest can be made in a variety of ways. Whether in the form of a residual legacy, a specifically allocated sum or a proportion of your estate, your gift will be put to excellent use in the development of Oxford Philomusica.

"By providing concerts of the highest professional standards and through its organisation of the Summer Piano festival, Oxford Philomusica plays a vital role in maintaining Oxford as one of the world’s foremost cultural centres. However every first-class orchestra relies on its sponsors and supporters to fill a financial gap... The less affluent among us cannot help as much as we can in our lifetime, but we might feel that ensuring the continuity of this wonderful orchestra would be a better purpose for our legacy ... I am happy to think that after my death I shall be providing at least one of those magical evenings which have given me so much pleasure"
