A Legacy Gift is a planned future donation to a charity, given through a will or other form of designation. It is a decision that each person makes in their own financial planning process, taking into account their charitable wishes and values.

Legacy gifts left in wills are a really important way of making a lasting difference to the care that we can provide for older people. However, even if you haven’t made a will, making a pledge to leave a gift in your will in the future would really help us find out about your future intentions and enable us to plan for the future.

If you have already made a will, but you want to leave a legacy to a charity you can make an addition or change it without re-writing your current will. This addition is called a codicil. Please speak to your solicitor or legal representative about this.

Should you wish to leave a Legacy Gift to Pilgrims’ Friend Society, you can choose one of three options:

  • 1. Specific Legacy

You can choose an item that you wish to donate to “Pilgrims' Friend Society”

  • 2. Pecuniary Legacy

You can define a specific monetary amount that you wish to ensure goes to “Pilgrims' Friend Society”

  • 3. Residual Legacy

Once you have looked after your friends and family you could leave a percentage of what remains to Pilgrims' Friend Society, say by defining the gift as “50% of my residual estate” to go to “Pilgrims Friend Society”
