Leave a Legacy
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.
SCIAF are part of Will Aid.
Will Aid is a special partnership between the legal profession and nine of the UK's best-loved charities. Every November, participating solicitors waive their fee for writing a basic Will. Instead, they invite their clients to make a voluntary donation to Will Aid.
With Will Aid, everyone benefits. You get a professionally drawn-up Will and peace of mind, while charities just like SCIAF receive much-needed donations for our work.
To take part, visit the Will Aid website www.willaid.org.uk or call them on 0300 0309 558 for details of a solicitor near you.
