Leave a Legacy

For over 120 years, Truro Cathedral has been inspiring people all over the world as a place of worship, heritage, music and beauty. It was built by the people of Cornwall and is Cornwall’s only cathedral. By leaving a legacy you will be helping to support this special place for generations to come. Truro Cathedral does not receive regular government or Church of England support and is a self-funded organisation. We rely on the public’s vital donations to keep the building open, for which costs are estimated to be around £3,500 per day. When making a will your priority will always be to your family and loved ones, but if it is possible to leave a gift, it is an opportunity to support the cathedral and its mission. It could be a fixed sum or a percentage – currently if you choose to leave 10% of your estate to a charity or a cathedral you will pay a reduced rate of inheritance tax of 36% from 40%. If leaving a legacy is something you are considering and would like to discuss please contact us at info@trurocathedral.org.uk
