After providing for your family and friends you may wish to leave a charitable gift in your will. Regardless of the size, legacy gifts are vital in helping our charity be able to continue our work. If you have enjoyed supporting Ecologia’s work helping disadvantaged children in the world, why not leave a tax free gift in your Will to help us continue?
Leaving a gift to Ecologia Youth Trust in your Will can not only give you profound satisfaction in knowing that your support will live on into the future, but can also make the burden of inheritance tax on your estate lighter.
However you choose to remember Ecologia Youth Trust through your Will, and whatever size your legacy may be, you can be sure it really will be appreciated and will help us to continue to support the disadvantaged children in our projects.
Make sure you have made a Will! Failure to do this can mean the fruits of your life’s work ending up in the government’s coffers for them to spend as they like!
If you have already made a will, but you want to leave a legacy to a charity you can make an addition to it without re-writing your current will. This addition is called a codicil. It is important to add our Registered Charity number SC023976 and lodge it with your solicitor. 35% of people say they’d happily leave a gift in their will, but only 7% actually do.
Please contact us for information on how to do this simply and easily.
Ways to leave a legacy
- A Pecuniary Legacy – a specific sum of money.
- A Residuary Legacy – the amount left over in your estate after all other pecuniary legacies and gifts have been made and after all administrative costs have been deducted. This type of legacy keeps pace with inflation and is the best way for Ecologia Youth Trust to benefit from your bequest.
- A Gift In Kind – bequeathing specific items such as your house, car, jewellery, shares etc.
If you have already mentioned Ecologia Youth Trust in your will, it would help us plan ahead if you could give us an idea of the nature of your intended bequest.
Thank you for considering to support us in this way!
