Your Legacy, a Child's Future

Leaving a legacy gift in your Will can help us to change a child’s life. It is a way to make a truly life-changing difference for future generations of children by helping to ensure they get the care and support they really need.

100-guarantee

We are proud of our guarantee that 100% of all funds raised are spent on the needs of children with disabilities or terminal illness. Not a penny is spent on anything else. You can even choose to help a child in your county.

Types of Legacy

Residuary Gift - A share of your estate

This is given as a percentage or share of your estate once all specific gifts, debts and expenses have been met. A residuary gift is particularly valuable because it maintains ‘real value’ in line with the rate of inflation. It’s a popular way to leave a legacy gift because it ensures your loved ones are taken care of and you don’t need to keep changing your Will as circumstances change.

Gift in Kind - A specific item

This is a bequest of particular items or assets that are not in the form of money. This could be property, shares, works of art or other valuable items.

Monetary Gift - A specific sum

A gift for a specified sum of money (e.g. £5,000). As inflation rises and living costs increase, monetary gifts are subject to lose value and therefore you may wish to update this gift periodically or consult your solicitor on ways to protect the value of a gift of this kind.

How to Leave a Legacy Gift

Including a Legacy in a new Will

We strongly advise that you consult a solicitor when making your Will, but we can provide a copy of our ‘suggested wording’ for guidance on how to include a gift.

Amending an existing Will to include a Legacy Gift

If you have already made your Will, the easiest way to include a gift is to use a Codicil Form. Then all you have to do is return it to your solicitor for it to be added to your Will.
