Writing a will or finding a fitting tribute for a loved one can be an emotional time. The Fundraising Team at Liverpool Cathedral will be open and honest with you about your options and we will work with you closely to make sure you find the right way to celebrate a life well lived.

We can help you with some of the phrases around making a will, and can help you decide if you want to make a pecuniary, specific or residuary gift.

Many people include a brick in our People’s Path in their gifts. Set up to envelop the outside of Liverpool Cathedral, the People’s Path tells the story of those who’ve helped maintain and support one of the city’s most iconic buildings and your brick will continue this tradition.

There are three main ways you can leave a gift in your will to Liverpool Cathedral:

Direct your support where the need is greatest

Many of the gifts we receive which are unrestricted are added to Liverpool Cathedral’s endowment fund. This is important because it enables us to use the funds on the most urgent need for the Cathedral for hundreds of years to come.

Support a particular area of our work

We recognise that people have long standing connections with the many of the amazing things that happen at Liverpool Cathedral. Past legacies have supported our music department, helped refurbish the organ, and even looked after our bells.

Leaving property or objects

You can give property, a specific object or a collection (such as paintings, books or furniture) to Liverpool Cathedral. Most often these are given with the intention that those items can be sold, and the resulting income can be used to support our important work.
