Leave a Legacy
Leave a gift to SCIAF in your will
Planning for the future is something that we all must do, to make sure the things we hope for will happen.
When making a Will we plan to provide for family and loved ones, and to take care of our affairs. But it's also an opportunity to leave a lasting legacy and change lives for generations to come.
Some years, as much as 20% of the money we spend has come from gifts in Wills. So you can be assured that leaving a gift of any value will make a real and lasting difference to the people that SCIAF works with.
There are three main types of gift that you can leave:
- a share of your estate (a residuary gift)
- a fixed amount of money (a pecuniary gift)
- a particular item (a specific gift)
Having your Will written professionally can give you great peace of mind. If you’d like more information about leaving a gift to SCIAF in your Will, get in touch.
We fully respect that making a Will is a very personal and private matter and as such all enquiries we receive in this regard are treated sensitively and in strictest confidence.
