There are three main ways you can support the work of Shinewater Shaftesbury Centre in your will:
1. A residuary legacy is a gift of all or a percentage of what’s left of your estate after all other payments have been made. It’s an effective way of dividing an estate between the causes and persons in your life that are important to you and can be more beneficial to charities as it won’t decrease in value due to inflation.
2. A pecuniary legacy is a gift of a sum of money of your choosing. It is possible to add a pecuniary legacy to an existing Will using a simple Codicil document. It’s worth bearing in mind that this type of gift will decrease in value over time as the cost of living increases.
3. You can also leave what’s called a specific gift. This could be anything from a piece of jewellery or a property to a selection of shares. If you’d like to give in this way, we would recommend contacting us so we can discuss your intentions.
