• A bequest is a gift made in a Will. A bequest can take many forms including a percentage of your estate, a specific amount or an asset such as property or shares.
  • A benefit of making a bquest is that all your assets remain at your disposal and under your control during your lifetime.
  • The majority of individuals who leave a bequests have modest estates.
  • You can make a bequest of any size. There is no minimum or maximum amount.
  • You can specify precisely where you want your money to be directed or you can leave this to the discretion of St Mary's.
  • You can make sure that your family and friends are the primary beneficiaries of your bequest and still make an impact on the future of St Mary’s with your bequest.
  • You can modify your bequest if your circumstances change. Informing St Mary’s about a gift in your will is not binding in any way and you can change your mind at any point. All information is kept in the strictest confidence.
  • Everyone who informs us that they have made a bequest is invited to join the Bishop Riley Society.
  • Your bequest can remain anonymous.
