Become a Town Benefactor - Gifts in Wills

Gifts in Wills help considerably in promoting the aims of Kettering Civic Society. You are invited to choose and support the Blue Plaque Heritage Trail, Kettering Mosaic projects, or the production of publications and exhibitions. Even 1% of your estate or a modest cash sum will help to enhance and promote the town and demonstrate your civic pride. Of course we understand that your family and friends come first but we hope that you will also consider supporting the town in this very special way. A gift in your Will is easy to carry out through a conversation with your executor or professional adviser asking them to amend your Will. Thank you!

If you would like to become a town benefactor here is an example of the wording that may be used in your Will :
Residuary gift - I give a ....% share of the residue of my estate to Kettering Civic Society to be used for its general charitable purposes and I declare that the receipt of their Treasurer or other proper officer shall be a full and sufficient discharge.
Cash gift - I give free of tax to Kettering Civic Society Charity number: 11316192, the sum of £  .......................... [words and figures] to be used for its general charitable purposes, and I declare that the receipt of their Treasurer or other proper Officer shall be a full and sufficient discharge.
Codicil - If you already have a Will but would like to amend it to including Kettering Civic Society in it then a codicil is one answer but it is very important to take professional advice to ensure the codicil does not conflict with your current Will.

Would you like to reduce your inheritance tax? Inheritance tax is complicated and to ensure you minimise any tax liabilities it is important to take professional advice. But if the value of your estate is above the tax threshold then it is likely that for every £1000 you leave us your estate is likely to save £400 inheritance tax because of our charity status

For newcomers to the society or to the area perhaps an explanation of how the society operates might be useful.

We have a committee who meet monthly to discuss mainly planning issues within the town and matters that are brought to our attention by our members and any other concerned parties bearing in mind the objectives of the Society. To encourage discussion and form a unity with likeminded people several social events and outings are organised throughout the year, these hopefully stimulate a diversity of civic, cultural and architectural interests.

Committee members work voluntarily and the Society depends on the commitment of its officers and the time they are able to devote during their working week. Support in attending functions is always most welcome but not compulsory to membership.

Our Membership fees (£15 annually) help to keep members informed and any profits made are placed in a special projects fund. In addition, annually we are able to present donations to worthy causes which enhance the town and thus Civic Pride.
