Your Will is an opportunity to leave future gifts for the people and causes you care most about.
Whether it be a gift for friends, family or to a charity of your choice. It is a gift that leaves a lasting legacy in your memory.
How a gift in your Will could make a difference?
A gift in your Will can make sure that Claire House is always here for families that need us in the future. It is a special way to continue to support the charity that is close to your heart.
We are very grateful for the support you give us today, but if you decide to include a gift for Claire House in your Will, you can support our future too.
These vital gifts already make a huge difference here at Claire House. 1 in 5 children we care for is funded by gifts in Wills.
The sad fact is, the number of seriously and terminally ill children needing our services is rising every year and by 2030 we’re expecting to be caring for around 30% more children. So it’s clear we’re going to need even more support from our local community in the years ahead.
Leaving a gift in your Will is easier than you may think
Writing your Will or updating it to include a gift to Claire House doesn’t have to be complicated or costly, especially if you use our free Will writing service.
Here are a few simple steps for you to consider in your Will writing process and we are always here if you have any questions along the way.
1. Download your FREE Will planner guide
You can download your Will planner guide for FREE. The Will planner is a great first step and can help you prepare for questions a solicitor will ask at your appointment. If you are unsure of any of the questions, please do not worry, your solicitor will be happy to discuss them with you at your appointment.
Consider who you want to put in your Will
Your loved ones will come first in your thoughts, but there may also be friends and charities you want to remember in your Will.
Think about what type of gift you want to leave
You can choose to leave a specified amount of money, known as a pecuniary gift, or a specific item such as a piece of jewellery. You could also choose to leave what’s known as a residuary gift, which is a percentage of the remainder of your estate once all of your other wishes for loved ones have been carried out. Residuary gifts are a good choice for many people because they don’t devalue over time.
