DIFFERENT TYPES OF LEGACIES

There are a number of different types of legacies you may wish to consider:

A pecuniary legacy allows you to specify a sum of money to give

A specific legacy enables you to leave a specific asset such as property, works of art and shares. We would be happy to advise you as to whether object or works are appropriate for our collections

A residuary legacy is a gift of all or part of your estate after other legacies and expenses have been paid

A reversionary legacy allows you to leave assets to the Ashmolean whilst giving a named person the benefit of them during his or her lifetime
