When making your Will you may wish to leave a gift to your favourite charities. By remembering Willow in your Will you will ensure both your own and Willow’s legacy can continue.
Having an up-to-date Will, will ensure those you care about most and the causes you wish to support will benefit from your estate. Without a current Will your wishes will not automatically be fulfilled. Remember any major life changes, like marriage, children or financial situation may mean you will need to update your Will. We also suggest you draw up your Will in the presence of your solicitor to ensure everything is accurate.
There are several ways in which you can leave a gift to Willow in your Will:
- A residuary legacy is when a person leaves all or a percentage of their estate to charity after other gifts and debts have been paid. This type of legacy means you do not have to keep altering your Will as your circumstances change and keeps up with inflation.
- A pecuniary legacy is a specific amount of money and will be affected by inflation. However, we advise you consult your solicitor on what is best for your particular circumstances.
- A specific legacy is where you leave a specific item or items of value that you wish to give to someone or your favourite charities.
Leaving a gift in your Will can help us to ensure we can provide more seriously ill young adults with a Special Day.
