Leaving a legacy to Quartet Community Foundation is a simple way for you to leave money to benefit the local community for generations to come and create something of real and lasting value to local people.
With Quartet, all legacy gifts are invested and only the income is used year after year. In this way, your gift will keep on giving as it remains as a permanent fund through us.
The late Ron Barnes, a local businessman and scientist, was passionate about giving young people opportunities and left a legacy to Quartet Community Foundation to continue the charitable work in his name to benefit hundreds of local students for years to come.
Each year Quartet makes hundreds of grants to charities and voluntary groups in the West of England, benefitting thousands of local people, but there are always many worthwhile applications that we turn down or can’t accept through lack of funds.
A legacy, of whatever size, would enable us to help more charities and voluntary groups to do what they do so well – meet community aspirations and make a profound difference to people’s lives in our region.
