Leave a gift in your will
By leaving a gift in your will you will be improving the lives of homeless men and women in your community long after you have gone.
Writing a will prompts big personal decisions and your loved ones will always come first. But we also know that having a gift left in a will enables our life saving work to continue – no matter how big or small the gift. We can only continue to offer our vital support thanks to incredible supporters like you. Leaving money to Turning Tides might also reduce or remove your estate from inheritance tax.
There are different types of gifts that can be left in a will:
- Specific gift – you can leave specific items such as property, jewellery or furniture that we might benefit from.
- Cash gift – leaving a pecuniary legacy, you are instructing your solicitor that you would like a certain amount of cash to be left to Turning Tides.
- Residuary gift – the remainder of your estate once gifts left to loved ones have been shared out and any taxes or debts are paid. In leaving this type of gift you ensure that all your estate is divided up between people and causes of your choice and not left to the government to disperse.
Ensure your will is valid and legal by using a professional will writer or a solicitor. They can explain to you how to ensure the people you want to remember and any charities you want to support are recognised in your will.
We would love to know if you intend to leave us a gift. This will allow us to thank you and let you know how your gift will benefit the people we work with.
