Legacies & honorary giving

Leave a legacy

Leave a legacy to ensure future generations can enjoy what you love about Aurora and our music. Legacies can be made in favour of Aurora Orchestra (a charity registered in England and Wales, no. 1155738). We are very grateful for every bequest we receive.

Bequests to a charity can be an effective way to reduce the total amount of tax liable on your estate. There are several types of legacy that you may wish to consider. Gifts can be a specified sum of money, a proportion of your residuary estate or an item or asset. Your solicitor can advise you on the different ways in which your assets can be distributed and ensure your intentions are expressed in the correct legal terms.

Amending an existing will is straightforward: a codicil is added to reflect the change in your wishes. Your solicitor can advise you on the correct way in which to do this, to ensure that the amendment is legally valid.

Honorary giving

We will be delighted to receive a gift to Aurora in honour or in memory of a family member, friend or colleague. This could be a donation to the orchestra, sponsoring one of our players or supporting a concerto in the Mozart’s Piano series.

For a confidential conversation about making a bequest or an honorary gift, please contact Caroline Harris, Director of Development & Strategic Support on +44 (0) 20 7014 2804 or at caroline@auroraorchestra.com.
