Legacies and Gifts
A Legacy for the Future
The South Downs Natural Burial Site is run by the charity Earthworks Trust, and all profits go to support the wider educational work of The Sustainability Centre. This can range from early years' education to secondary schools to people with mental health difficulties.
With your help, in the form of a legacy to Earthworks Trust, we can continue to manage and develop our beautiful site for people and for wildlife.
Please contact your solicitor for details of how to include a legacy in your Will. There are various types of bequest, and you may wish to consider the following options:
If you already have a Will, your Solicitor can simply add your bequest as a 'codicil'.
Please tell us if you make a bequest, so that we can offer our thanks.
In Memoriam Giving and Donations
A donation to the Earthworks Trust, in memory of a loved one, also enables us to continue the important work of The Sustainability Centre. It is a lasting tribute, and one that outlives any cut flowers.
If you intend to place a notice in the press, perhaps you would also consider including 'Donations to Earthworks Trust', and our address shown below.
Your gifts are very gratefully received, and will be acknowledged with a personal letter of thanks.
