Gifts in Wills

Leave a legacy to charity

Your Will is the safest way to protect those closest to you and lets you choose what happens to your money and possessions.

It also makes it easier and less stressful for your family while they try to sort out your affairs after you're gone.

If you don't write a Will, the law decides how your estate is passed on – and this might not be as you had wished.

 

A gift can be left by writing a Will or amending an existing one.

Leave a legacy to charity

Whatever kind of gift you leave, know that it has the power to help families with babies born prematurely or sick.

STEP 1

Make a note of our charity details

You'll need our full name and details to ensure the gift reaches us.

Simpsons Special Care Babies - Registered Scottish Charity no. SC002013

c/o Brodies LLP, 15 Atholl Crescent, Edinburgh EH3 8HA.

STEP 2

Decide what type of gift you want to include

There are two main ways to include a gift:

A residuary gift is a percentage or share of the balance of your estate once all other payments and gifts have been made.

A pecuniary gift is a fixed amount of money.

STEP 3

Consider inheritance tax

Anything you include to charity is free of Inheritance Tax. By including 10% of your estate to charity you can reduce the amount of Inheritance Tax you pay and support a cause close to your heart.

STEP 4

Create or adjust your will

Once you've got this far, it's time to visit a solicitor to have your Will drawn up or adjusted.

If you don't have a solicitor, you can find one in your area by contacting the Law Society.

 

Thank you.
