GIFTS IN YOUR WILL
A gift in your Will to the Community Foundation Wakefield District, is a wonderful way to ensure you are supporting your local community for generations to come.
Peace of mind
Despite it not being something we often talk about, there are many good reasons why you should make a Will. Most importantly it gives you peace of mind knowing that you have provided for your family and friends and that your wishes will be carried out. There is also the option to leave a gift to charity, that won’t cost you anything now.
Please consider leaving a gift to the Community Foundation Wakefield District, and help fulfil our vision to inspire local giving, improve communities and changes lives.
To include a gift in a new Will or to amend an existing one, it is always advisable to seek professional advice from a qualified solicitor.
Ways you can give
How you decide to support the Community Foundation is entirely up to you. You might decide to leave a specific sum of money or a share of your estate after you have made other gifts. Leaving the residue, or part residue is a popular way of giving as you do not have to decide on an amount now, you just need to decide what proportion of your estate you would like to leave to the Community Foundation. Just let your solicitor know who will ensure your wishes are included using the correct legal wording. The following information is also needed:
Community Foundation Wakefield District
PO Box 695
13 Upper York Street
Wakefield, WF1 9NW
Registered Charity Number 1121884
Surprising that less than half of adults in the UK have made a Will, so make a promise to do so – perhaps fulfilling a New Year’s resolution, or as part of a ‘spring clean’.
Future generations will benefit from the gift you leave today. It could be £50 or £50,000, a piece of jewellery or a painting. Any gift large or small makes a difference and it is a wonderful way to help others.
