If you have any questions relating to a gift that has been left to us or you want to make a payment of a legacy then please contact our team of experienced legacy professionals, who will be very happy to help you.
Gifts in wills account for almost a third of our annual income. We really could not meet the demand for our services without the forethought of the amazing supporters who leave us these gifts.
Our team may also be able to suggest ways to maximise the value of the estate. We have access to preferential rates with stockbrokers, estate agents, surveyors and auctioneers. We may also be able to suggest ways of making the most of charities tax exemptions.
Because legacies are so important to our work our auditors are very keen to ensure that we administer all gifts in accordance with the guidelines set down by the Charity Commission. This does mean that we will sometimes need to ask you to provide details about the estate such as a copy of the will and estate accounts.
Sometimes supporters may stipulate that they want the money they leave us to be spent in a specific area of the UK or for a specific purpose. Where that is the case we will always ensure that these wishes are honoured.
