ETO wins “Highly Commended” prize from Legacy10 Award for Excellence
We are delighted to announce that David Burgess (Head of Partnerships and Development) and ETO have been awarded a “Highly Commended” prize as part of the 2014 Legacy10 Awards for Excellence.
The Legacy10 Awards for Excellence were set up to recognise those who have contributed to legacy giving in the UK through innovation and delivery, and was open to all legacy fundraisers working for a registered UK charity.
Susan Hughes, Legacies Manager at the V&A Museum, won the national award, and Rosalyn Leclecq, Legacy Officer at the Essex Wildlife Trust, won the regional award.
ETO was one of five shortlisted organisations. The Awards were decided by a panel comprising senior experts in the fields of philanthropy, business and the media. The panel was chaired by Legacy10 founder and Chairman Roland Rudd.
Legacy10 is a campaigning organisation launched in the autumn of 2011 in order raise awareness of the Government’s changes to inheritance tax which came into force in April 2012. Since that date, anyone who leaves at least 10% of their wealth to charity will have their inheritance tax bill reduced from 40% to 36%.
