The Countryside Alliance Foundation is dedicated to providing opportunities for the public, particularly disadvantaged children and young people, to enjoy the countryside and the wealth of educational, health and wellbeing benefits it offers.
Founded in 2007, we have introduced thousands to the countryside and enabled many young people who get few life chances to participate in positive outdoor activities.
But we need your help. We want to ensure future generations are given the opportunity to learn from and enjoy the countryside.
There are many ways for you to support The Countryside Alliance Foundation. From a one-off donation or regular giving, a gift in memory of a loved one, or becoming a Patron.
Why your Support Matters
Casting for Recovery provides fly fishing retreats to help women whose lives have been profoundly affected by breast cancer.
Our retreats enable ladies to share experiences, gain expert medical advice, boost confidence and acquire a new network of friends to help move forward with their illness.
Becky attended a retreat and tells us: “It was interesting, and even reassuring, to talk with others who’d had similar experiences; we really were all in the same boat in one way or another and it meant there were very few barriers. Everyone was pretty inspirational for me, and I feel it’s played an instrumental part of acceptance and looking forward to the future.”
We receive no government funding and rely on charitable grants and the generosity of our supporters. With your support, we can expand the programme and widen our geographical scope, offering greater access for ladies to participate in our programme.
How to leave a Legacy to the Countryside Alliance Foundation
If or when the time is right for you to include a gift in your will please remember us. Each gift means a great deal. Gifts left to us in wills are a vital source of income, helping us to make a real difference to children’s lives.
Leaving a legacy to The Countryside Alliance Foundation can be a valuable way of reducing inheritance tax liability on your estate, as legacies to a registered charity is tax free. If the gift brings the total value of your estate below the inheritance tax threshold, then your remaining estate may not be liable for inheritance tax. The rate of inheritance tax can change and we would suggest you consult a professional advisor.
Seek Legal Advice
We would recommend that you speak to a solicitor or legal adviser to make sure your wishes are stipulated correctly in your will.
Writing a will ensures that all your assets are dealt with correctly and items going to the people you wish to receive them. Your solicitor can explain the different options available when considering leaving a gift in your will.
If you choose to leave a gift to The the Countryside Alliance Foundation in your will, your solicitor will need our full name and address, including charity number:
The Countryside Alliance Foundation (Registered charity number 1121034)
