Leave a Gift in Your Will
It is important to have a will to ensure that your wishes for your estate are carried out and to minimise the chances of your wishes being contested. It is important to consult your solicitor, Guardian Trust or Public Trust office for advice in drawing up your will. A general gift gives us the flexibility to direct funds where they are needed, but we are also very happy to discuss options if you would like to leave a gift in your will towards a specific purpose. There are a couple of ways of supporting us in your will:
Speciﬁc Legacy: You may wish to leave a specific amount of money, shares, bonds, items or a nominated gift to the Society.
Residuary Legacy: You may wish to leave a gift of all or part of your net estate (what remains after all taxes, specific gifts to family and friends and the cost of administering the estate have been paid). This type of legacy should be expressed as a percentage or share of your estate.
The Society’s registered charity number is CC41020.
