Tax-Efficient Giving

As a registered charity, all donations made to us can be highly tax-efficient for you, and can significantly increase the value of your gift to us at no additional cost. Our table below breaks down how this works.

For example: the table below demonstrates possible savings for UK tax residents 2020/21 if you became a Bristol Old Vic Champion, giving £5,000 per year over five years:

Total gift cost (basic rate taxpayer)Annual cost (basic rate taxpayer)Total gift cost (40% rate taxpayer)Annual cost (40% rate taxpayer)Total gift cost (45% rate taxpayer)Annual cost (45% rate taxpayer)Gross value to Bristol Old Vic (inc.Gift Aid)

Please note, the table above is for illustration only, and tax rates vary between the nations. We recommend you speak to your personal tax advisor about the full tax implications of giving.

Leave a Legacy

Remembering Bristol Old Vic in your will is a wonderful way to pass your passion for live theatre onto the next generation.

We are honoured that many people have been so touched by what they have experienced at Bristol Old Vic that they’ve made a commitment to leave us a gift in their will. Legacy gifts, large and small, have supported productions and creative programmes that touch people’s lives in so many ways.

If you leave a gift to a charity in your will, the donation will either:

  • contribute to a reduction in your inheritance tax rate (if you leave more than 10% of your estate to charity), or
  • be taken off the value of your estate prior to calculating inheritance tax
