Leaving a legacy
13% of all charitable donations in the UK come from legacies.
Leaving a gift in your will is a valuable way that you could help to have a lasting impact on disadvantaged communities in Southern Africa.
Without a will, it is the law that determines what happens to your money, property and possessions. Making a will is a way of providing for those people you care about in life. It can be a life-affirming activity a celebration of who and what matters to you most. It is also a way to guarantee that the causes you care about will continue long after you're gone.
If you leave a gift to a charity in your will, its value will be deducted from your estate (money, possessions and property) before inheritance tax is worked out. For further information about making a will, here are a few useful guides:
- Remember A Charity
- The Law Society
- Citizen's Advice Bureau
- Which? Consumer Magazine
- Money Saving Expert
Ultimately, you will probably want to talk to a solicitor.
