A gift from your estate (your money, possessions and property) before Inheritance Tax is worked out. Gifts made before your death may also qualify for exemption. You can either leave a fixed sum (known as a ‘Pecuniary Legacy’), or part or all of your estate once other gifts have been distributed (known as a ‘Residuary Legacy’). If you already have a will you and would like to make a donation you can add a codicil to an existing will.
We advise you to use a solicitor to make or change your will.
More information on making a will and leaving gifts to charity can be found on the government website or from Citizen’s Advice.
Giving a gift in memory – you can ask for gifts to be given in memory of a loved one in lieu of flowers.
