Help secure the future of our landscape…

The Chilterns is a special place and for almost 60 years the Chiltern Society has worked hard to keep it that way.  By remembering our Charity in your will, a gift of any size will help ensure that we have the resources to meet the challenges ahead.

Our membership fees cover our charity’s basic running costs so we depend on legacies, which make up almost half of our charity income, to help us to implement long-term plans and protect the countryside for future generations to enjoy.

Gifts in wills allow us to…



Include a gift in your will…

We understand that decisions such as this are personal and your loved ones come first. As a registered charity, legacy gifts to the Chiltern Society are free from inheritance tax and capital gains tax and as such could be of benefit to the remainder of your estate.

If you do consider including the Chiltern Society in your will, the smallest gift can make a lasting difference.

Whether it is a gift in the form of money, financial assets such as shares, or in property and valuables, we suggest you contact your solicitor to make a change in your will. Alternatively, you can simply add a codicil to include the Society.

The Bluebell Guild

The Bluebell Guild recognises supporters who indicate their intention to help us in this way. The Guild also makes it possible to thank people during their lifetime for their foresight and generosity. Whilst membership will remain confidential, members will receive occasional communications and be invited to exclusive events.

Although it is a personal matter, letting us know that you have decided to include the Chiltern Society in your Will is helpful as it enables us to plan for the future.
