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.
Thank you for thinking of leaving The SEED Project a legacy in your will. Your gift, whatever its size, will help us to go on empowering disadvantaged communities in Southern Africa.
If you do decide to leave a gift to The SEED Project in your will, then we would love it if you would let us know! That way, we can thank you personally, and explore with you whether you might like to get more involved in the charity now.
