Legacies are a lifeline for our parishes. Each year around 4,000 people leave a gift in their will to a Church of England parish. In total, parishes receive around £55 million in legacy gifts each year – gifts to finance mission projects, maintain beautiful church buildings and grow faithful communities.
This booklet provides a guide to encourage legacies in your parish and some practical steps your PCC can take. It can be used by the PCC to help plan a Legacy Campaign. It also has helpful tools and resources including action points and where to find further information.
