Your will is your opportunity to leave a gift to both the people and causes that are close to your heart.
We'd love you to support our work with a gift in your will. The process is easy and we can support you every step of the way. Hear from Eric why he decided to leave a legacy to Barnardo's:
Thinking about your gift
If you want to leave Barnardo's a gift in your will, it's worth taking time to think about the form and value of your gift.
You can leave the following types:
- a gift of a specific amount of money - you can ask your will writer to index link the amount to ensure that its value increases with inflation
- a percentage of whatever is left from your estate once you've looked after your family and friends
- a specific item such as property, jewellery or other valuables
You can leave your money free of Inheritance Tax up to a certain amount. For each £100 above that amount, when you leave £60 to your friends and family, £40 will go to the Treasury, unless you take control of your money and leave that £100 to a charity of your choice.
That way, you decide how your money is used. Your money, left as a legacy in your Will, could make a real difference to your chosen Charity.
It is entirely up to you whether or not you tell us about your gift. However, it would be wonderful to know so we can thank you and keep you up to date with our work.
