Leave a Gift in Your Will

 

Leaving a gift in your will is one of the biggest things you can do to help create a community where everyone can live free from abuse.  

Every week in the UK two women are murdered by their partner or ex-partner. We’ve been working for over 30 years to create a community where children and adults can live free from abuse.  Leaving a gift in your will can help bring this day forward and transform lives.  

No matter the size, we’ll use your gift to: – 

 

  • Educate children to prevent the development of abusive behaviours before they arise 
  • Train professionals to provide the right response  
  • Support men experiencing abuse to remain safe 
  • Challenge gender inequality in society 

Your gift will help to transform lives.

Types of Gift

A Residuary Gift

The residue (or a proportion of the residue) of an estate after all other gifts, debts and expenses have been paid. 

A Pecuniary Gift

A fixed sum of money.

A Reversionary Gift

A two-stage gift where assets are first held in a trust to provide some benefit to an individual. This could be a property for them to live in or income generated by investments.  Once that individual’s need for the property (or trust) ends, the assets then pass to a second beneficiary, such as a charity. 

A Specific Gift

An identifiable asset such as a property, an investment or a piece of jewellery.  

These types of legacy gifts are a great way of ensuring that both your loved ones and the charitable causes you care about will benefit from your estate.
