We heavily rely on voluntary donations and the income received from legacies is a vital source of funding for us. It gives us the security to plan our services so that we can continue to make a difference, funding vital research and supporting even more families.
We understand that your family and friends will always come first when it comes to planning for the future, but after this many people like to leave a gift to a charity in their will.
In many instances, it can even help to reduce any Inheritance Tax that might be payable on any property or money you leave behind.
The kind gifts you can give include;
- A share of your estate. After you’ve provided for your family and friends, you can leave the remainder of your estate – this is called a residuary gift.
- A cash gift. This is an exact sum of money and is called a pecuniary gift.
- A specific gift. This could be a piece of jewellery or any specific items you mention in your will.
Leaving a gift to Cerebra in your will is very straightforward, but you should always seek independent legal advice from a solicitor to prepare your will. That way your will is legal and valid. To find your nearest solicitor, we suggest using the Law Society.
Once you decide the type of gift you would like to leave, please instruct your solicitor to include the following details in your will.
