Would you like to play your special part in our future by leaving a gift in your will to the Beacon?

Leaving a gift is a wonderful way for you to make a real impact on what we do, supporting our programme to inspire generations to come across Inverclyde. A bequest in your will is an inspiring way to continue your support of the Beacon Arts Centre. Our promise to you is that we will ensure your gift is spent in the most cost-effective way, where it is needed most. 

How to leave a legacy, and continue to light up lives in Inverclyde

It is simple to include a legacy in your will. However, we recommend you use a solicitor to draft your will and detail any gifts and legacies that you wish to make.

Whether you are drafting a will for the first time or updating an existing will, you will need to decide what type of gift you would like to leave to Greenock Arts Guild Limited (trading as Beacon Arts Centre). There are two types:

  • A residuary gift: You choose to leave a share or the whole of whatever is left in your estate after all other payments and legacies have been made.
  • A cash (or pecuniary) gift: You choose to make a gift of a fixed amount to Greenock Arts Guild Limited. Note that the value of pecuniary legacies will decrease over time, as the cost of living increases.

Legacies to charities, such as Greenock Arts Guild Limited, are exempt from inheritance tax and could help reduce executor liability, as the value of the gift will be deducted from the estate before the tax is calculated. All of your gift would go directly to Greenock Arts Guild Limited, trading as Beacon Arts Centre.

Please remember to use our full name, correct registered address and charity number in any will:

  • Greenock Arts Guild Limited, 
  • Beacon Arts Centre, 
  • Custom House Quay, 
  • Greenock, 
  • PA15 1HJ
  • Charity number: SC003030
