Gifts left in wills are one of the major sources of income for UK-based charities. But while almost three quarters of people in Britain support charities, less than one in ten leave a charitable legacy in their last will and testament.

Our service allows you to assign a legacy of any size to a charity of your choice. You can either give a specific gift to a charity, normally a sum of money, or you can make the charity a residuary beneficiary.

Some people choose to make the charity into a backup residuary beneficiary in the case that there are no living relatives to inherit an estate.

The UK’s charitable sector currently receives around £2 billion a year from legacies.
