Alexander McQueen Will and Estate Details

Alexander McQueen Leaves Most of His $26 Million Estate to Charity

>> Documents made public today reveal that Alexander McQueen left an estate worth just over 16 million pounds ($26 million) at the time of his death. The designer, who committed suicide in Feb. 2010, left most of his fortune to charities, but also set aside portions for his siblings, household staff, and the upkeep of his dogs.

Among the allotments: 250,000 pounds ($410,000) each to his three sisters and two brothers; 50,000 pounds ($82,000) each to his two housekeepers for their "long and faithful service," his godson, and each of his nieces and nephews; and 50,000 pounds ($82,000) for the care of his dogs. He also donated 100,000 pounds ($164,000) each to two charities that help animals — the Battersea Dogs and Cats Home and Blue Cross sick animal center — and 100,000 pounds ($164,000) each to the London Buddhist Center and the Terrence Higgins Trust, the latter which promotes sexual health and safe sex practices.

The bulk (and remainder) of his estate was left to his Sarabande charity with the suggestion that some money be used for scholarships at Central St. Martin's in London, of which he was a graduate.
