Donations

Elidyr Communities Trust is a charity, so fundraising is vital to us. There are several ways to support us if you’d like to get involved.

In December 2018 we were thrilled to learn that we had been successful in securing a Big Lottery Grant to build a new Community Education Hub.

We are extremely lucky to benefit from an active Parents’ Association who are tirelessly involved in on-going fundraising. Indeed our new purpose-built Gymnasium is testament to their hard work and commitment.

All donations to the Charity are always very much welcomed. If you would like to make a one-off donation you can do so via our Just Giving page.

Legacy Giving

Legacies allow us to provide new facilities and opportunities. Gifts can also help us to plan for the future of Elidyr Communities Trust so that this special place will be here for the young people who need it for years to come.

After providing for their loved ones, many people choose to leave a legacy to the charities that are closest to them. A legacy gift is the only opportunity many of us will have to make a significant gift with a lasting impact.

Making such a special gift requires thought and consideration. If you would like to find out more about how you can help learners and residents through your will, please contact Dai Sibbons for a discreet, strictly confidential conversation on 01550 760450. We can help you to understand your options and the ways you can help. We always advise that you seek professional advice when making or amending your will.

Ways of Giving in Your Will

Your solicitor can advise you on a number of ways of leaving a legacy. The two most common are:

  • A monetary gift – a fixed amount.
  • A share of your estate after other legacies and charges have been met. This is known as a residuary gift. It is usually expressed as a percentage or fraction (e.g. 5%, one quarter). This way of giving ensures that the legacy will not decrease in value over time.

Legacy gifts to charity are free of inheritance tax.
