Legacy Gifts

If you believe that music changes lives, please consider remembering us in your Will.

Bromley Youth Music Trust shares your deep commitment to music and the contribution music makes to the world. Over 100,000 children have benefited from music tuition via BYMT, giving the opportunity to the children of Bromley borough, whatever their ability, to enjoy making music and benefit from the enhanced social and learning opportunities that this brings.

It is widely accepted that BYMT is the jewel in Bromley's crown, consistently winning national and international prizes and heralding a musical legacy to include a significant number of professional musicians, performers and composers.

Furthermore, BYMT has long cherished the idea that a musical education should be open to all, regardless of economic circumstance, and has operated a bursary scheme since its inception.

BYMT is an independent charity, and each year needs to raise £600,000 through grants, donations and fundraising. With your help, we can continue to nurture the musicians of tomorrow.

Your gift, no matter its size, will make a difference.

Thank you.

Gerald Sterling
CEO, Bromley Youth Music Trust

Making a legacy gift to Bromley Youth Music Trust

Legacy gifts to Bromley Youth Music Trust can be made in a number of ways depending on your circumstances. There are four main ways you can remember BYMT in your will: a cash gift; a share of your estate; a specific gift e.g. a musical instrument; or a gift in trust.

Tax-effective giving

Generally, gifts to charity are 100% Inheritance Tax free and are taken out of your estate before any tax is calculated. Therefore it may well mean that leaving a gift to charity reduces, or may possibly eliminate, your estate's liability to Inheritance Tax. You can also benefit from some relief from certain taxes such as Income Tax, when you donate to a charity while you are still alive.
