Legacy Policy


At St Nicholas’ Foundation, we welcome all gifts in wills. Our Foundation Legacy Policy is to use gifts to help fund the purposes of the Foundation as described in the Charter: “To support Anglican worship and church life in Finland”.

Since needs change over the years, we encourage you to leave a gift in your will for the general purposes of the Foundation rather than for a restricted purpose. We will discuss possible uses of your gift with your executors when the time comes, bearing in mind your known areas of interest in the church (e.g. music, buildings, children and youth, overseas mission or aid) and the church’s priorities at the time.

You can be confident that your gift will be used to make a real difference to future mission and ministry of Anglican Church in Finland.

We acknowledge gifts in whatever way the donor and/or his/her executors feel most appropriate to. Equally, we can make sure that gifts remain anonymous if the donor prefers.

If you would like to talk to someone in confidence about the sorts of purposes your gift might fund, and how/if you would like your gift to be acknowledged, please contact the Board by email board(a)stnicholasfoundation.fi

If you would like to make a gift to our Foundation in memoriam, please come and discuss this with us too. It can be a wonderful and appropriate way to remember a loved one.
