Leave a gift in your will
Making a will is one of the most important decisions you will ever make. And it’s a lot more affordable and straightforward than you may think.
A will ensures that your assets and possessions are left to those you love. It is also an opportunity to leave a lasting legacy for your chosen charities.
Why write a will and nominate a charity?
Writing a will ensures the people you love receive the things you want them to have. It is also an opportunity to leave a final gift to your chosen charities. If you don’t write a will, your assets will be divided according to the law rather than according to your wishes.
A gift in your will – of whatever size – can leave a lasting legacy. Your gift can help future generations to overcome challenges such as homelessness, domestic abuse, life-threatening addictions and more. Will you help them improve their lives and secure a better future for themselves and their families, once you’ve taken care of yours?
