Remembering Mansfield in Your Will
Legacies or planned gifts continue to play a central part in Mansfield’s efforts to provide for both current and future members of the College.
Whether it be providing for the library, endowing a Fellowship in a particular subject or helping Mansfield restore and display more of its heritage, legacy giving provides the opportunity to make a real difference to the part of College that means the most to you.
There are many ways you can leave a gift to Mansfield in your Will:
A Residuary Legacy This is the gift of all or part of the net value of your estate, after all liabilities, taxes, legacies and administrative expenses have been met. This gift is particularly simple to make as you do not need to worry about the sum or effects of inflation when writing your Will.
A Specific or non-Monetary Legacy If you wish, personal possessions, such as property, jewellery, works of art or stocks and shares can all be bequeathed in your Will.
A Pecuniary Legacy This simple form of legacy allows you to give a specific sum of money to Mansfield. The drawback to this type of legacy, however, is that it does not take into account the effects of inflation (as opposed to a residuary legacy).
A Conditional Legacy This provides for the eventuality that, if any one of your named beneficiaries does not survive you, their part of your estate will be left to the College.
A Revisionary Legacy This gift has the advantage of providing for your family first and then benefitting Mansfield. It involved leaving your assets to Trustees so that the beneficiaries can enjoy the benefits during their lifetime with the whole or a portion passing to the College on their death.
