Many supporters choose to give their donation to a specific Abbeyfield home where they have a personal connection, such as a house they’ve volunteered at or one that has looked after a loved one.
Leaving money or assets to a charity in a will is known as a legacy. Legacies are vital for most charities, with donations making a huge difference to organisations no matter how big or small your gift.
When leaving assets in your will, you can specify which organisation should receive what. To leave a gift in your will, you should make a note of the details of the charity/charities you wish to leave a gift to, including the name, Charity Number and registered address. Notify your solicitor or will writer of your desire to leave a gift to your chosen charity/charities and they will be able to include this in your will for you.
