Leave a gift in your Will
Our projects and activities are dependent upon the generosity of our supporters. Gifts left in Wills (legacies) are especially important. Such gifts may be big or small, but their effect on a child or adult with a vision impairment can be life-changing.
When someone is kind enough to let us know they wish to leave us a legacy, we are able to plan our future activities with added confidence.
Your gift to us can be the difference in ensuring a person with vision loss can access the world they live in and live a full and independent life, long into the future. Our annual report gives details of what we have achieved and our expenditure last year.
How to leave us a gift in your Will
Leaving a legacy gift is an important decision, but it doesn’t have to be complicated. We have a dedicated Legacy Development Coordinator here who can provide information and support to make the process as easy as possible and give you peace of mind.
Here are the basics:
Why make a Will Do you want to protect your children, loved ones and family home or leave it to chance? If you die without making a will, it could mean it doesn’t go where you want it to. So it really is important to make a will and make your intentions clear.
What if I do not make a Will Depending on the value of your estate you may be liable for Inheritance tax. Gifts to charities are exempt from Inheritance Tax so including a gift to Sight for Surrey could have tax benefits.
State in your Will that you would like to leave a gift to us we can give you information and contact details on local Solicitors and Will Writers. if you so wish.
There are two main types of gift that you can leave in your Will to Sight for Surrey:
- You can leave a specific sum of money or a specific item, such as stocks, shares or property.
- You can leave a share in, or all of, what’s left of the value of your estate after bills have been paid and all other legacies have been distributed.
And if you have already written us into your Will, we are incredibly grateful and we would love you to let us know. For more information, please contact the Legacy Development Coordinator. Tel: 01372 377701 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
