How to use this website
You may have been thinking about leaving a legacy to charity for a long time, but not got around to it. If so, you are not alone. Why not start by looking at What have I got to leave? You could print off a copy and then sit down with a cup of tea and a pen and work out roughly what you have. It may surprise you.
Most charities assume you are going to leave most of what you have to your family and friends, but imagine what your favourite charity could do with, say, just 5% of it.
I worked on legacies with two major charities for more than 25 years. I discovered how and why people leave legacies to charity, and saw what wonderful differences these legacies made to the lives of people the two charities were working with.
Legacies can help virtually all charities. They help people to teach theatrical skills; give carers a break; run art galleries; save endangered animals; find cures for diseases; teach new skills; support mission work, and much, much more.
Legacies to charity make the world a better place for our children and grand-children.
