By leaving a legacy to BIICL, you will help us to address the global legal issues of tomorrow. Legacy giving enables us to respond to new Rule of Law challenges, and means we can effectively meet the growing demand for our work.
Legacy gifts can help reduce your inheritance tax liability either by lowering the value of your estate before inheritance tax liability is calculated, or by reducing the rate of inheritance tax if you give at least 10% of your estate to charity. Government guidance on tax relief is available here.
If you are a US taxpayer, testamentary requests to BIICL's affiliate charity, the International Rule of Law Project (IROLP) which has 501(c) 3 status, are tax-deductible for estate tax purposes.
Share your plans
You are under no obligation to notify BIICL of your plans to leave a legacy, but doing so will enable us to keep you informed about our activities and invite you to special events.
If you would like to inform us about your plans, please complete a legacy notification form.
Alternatively you can discuss legacy giving with us by contacting Florence Skinner, Development Manager.
