Good for friends. Good for family.

And good for charities like Ely Cathedral.

Support Ely Cathedral with your Will For Good

Ely Cathedral has stood as a beacon of light and hope for nearly a thousand years. It costs £9,000 a day to care for this historic building, maintain daily worship and showcase the tradition of choral music. The work Ely Cathedral does today differs from a thousand years ago but is still fundamental to the mission and Benedictine heritage of education, outreach, welcome and care.

It has been said that a legacy is a ‘final gift to a friend’. We need only look around the Cathedral to see examples across the centuries of such friends who made a legacy gift to ensure that those who came after them are able to enjoy and be inspired by this magnificent building and all that it stands for, as they have themselves.

Leaving a gift in your Will is an easy and tax efficient way for you to support Ely Cathedral and ensure they can safeguard this inspirational building for future generations.

If you choose to leave 10% of your estate to charities (of which the Cathedral is one), you will also pay a reduced rate of inheritance tax on your entire estate above the threshold.

There is no obligation to leave a legacy gift to Ely Cathedral. Any gift, no matter the size, will make a lasting difference. Thank you.
