MAKING A DONATION OR BEQUEST
The volunteer trustees of the EGT are keen to increase the number of grants they award, and this will only be possible with increased funding. We, therefore, welcome any donations, large or small, that can be used to help young and aspiring golfers continue to play the game they love.
In the past, we have received donations from individuals, golf clubs, sections within golf clubs, and County Associations. We welcome gifts from anybody who has a passion for golf and a passion for supporting the younger golfers who need financial help to continue their journey in the game.
There are a number of ways you can make a donation, including:
Through our VirginMoney Donate account (click on link below)
Posting a cheque directly to the EGT at the address below. If you are a UK taxpayer then please let us have your address so we may claim back the Gift Aid on your donation. Cheques should be made out to The England Golf Trust and sent to:
The National Golf Centre
Lincolnshire, LN10 6PU
Another option to help support the trust is to make a bequest in your Will. If you then choose to leave a gift to the EGT, no matter what the size, we can assure you that each gift will go towards helping a young man or woman experience the pleasure that playing golf can bring.
There are two main ways in which you can choose to remember the EGT in your Will, namely:
Residuary Legacy: by choosing to leave the residue of your estate, or a percentage of this, to the Charity, you will be donating anything that remains upon your death, after all debts and charges have been paid. This is known as a residuary bequest.
Pecuniary Legacy: alternatively, you might consider making a donation of a specific amount in your Will to the Charity, known as a pecuniary bequest. This will be paid before the distribution of the residue of your estate.
If you do wish to make a bequest in your Will, then we strongly urge you to seek legal or professional advice to ensure that it is completed correctly.
