Gift in Wills

Each year our income from gifts in wills significantly supports our work and helps us make a difference to patients in our care.

Making a gift in your will, be that a percentage of your estate, a lump sum, shares or a valuable item, is a generous way of helping make a difference to patient care.

After providing for loved ones, we would like to ask you to consider leaving the Health Charity a gift in your Will, so that together we create a lasting legacy.

How to leave a gift in your will

Once you decide to make a Will, we recommend you use a solicitor. Professional advice is less expensive than you might think and having a valid and accurate Will can give real peace of mind.

Choose the type of gift you want to leave

There are a four main ways to leave a gift for us in your Will.

  • A residual gift is the remainder or a percentage of your estate after all other gifts and expenses have been deducted. This ensures that your loved ones are remembered first.
  • A pecuniary gift is a gift of a specific amount of money. Ask your solicitor to index link this gift to ensure that inflation will not reduce its value over time.
  • A specific request is a gift of a named item such as a painting.
  • A contingent benefit is a gift that is dependent on other factors such as outliving all other beneficiaries.
