By leaving a legacy you can ensure that the Tweed catchment is protected for future generations.  A legacy to Tweed Forum may be in the form of a gift of money or possessions. There are a number of different kinds of legacies.

A pecuniary legacy is a gift of a specified sum of money.

A residuary legacy is the remainder of your estate once all other bequests have been distributed and debts cleared.

A specific bequest is the gift of a particular item that you want to leave to a charity e.g. paintings, antiques, jewellery.

A contingent bequest is a gift in your will that is dependent on something that may or may not happen, for example that the beneficiaries named in the Will die before the Testator (person who made the Will).

If you are a UK resident your legacy to the Tweed Forum will be totally exempt from tax and may reduce your inheritance tax bill. The simplest way to leave a legacy is to consult your Solicitor and include it in your Will.
