Many think that legacy giving (or ‘planned giving’ as it’s sometimes known) has to be a large sum of money, but it really doesn’t, every penny genuinely makes a difference. You can also choose what your donation will be used for, such as specifically for a respite break or for activities for children.
A legal adviser will be able to explain the kind of gifts you can leave such as:
- A specific amount of cash, known as a ‘pecuniary gift’
- A share of your estate a ‘residuary gift’ after you have provided for your loved ones
- A specific gift, for example jewellery
You may or may not be aware that if you leave a legacy to our charity or another that it will be exempt from income tax, inheritance tax & capital gains tax. For advice on making or changing your will we strongly advise that you seek independent professional advice from a professional advisor.
We have a number of gifts you can buy from our webshop for family and friends that benefits (and raises awareness of) our charity or maybe you could sponsor an item or service for some of the families we support? Give us a call on 01457 680023 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
We can raise pennies and pounds through your used stamps! Please get your friends and families involved too and save all your stamps (including those from other overseas) from the workplace and home and either send them to us or drop them into one of our offices.
