How to leave a gift in your will

You may not have sat down and considered writing your will. However, it is essential that we take a few minutes out of our busy lives to think about it, to plan and to protect our loved ones and the causes we care most about.

Get Started:

Make a list – write down who you’d like to include in your will, such as family, friends and perhaps charities too. You can download and use a will planner to get you started.

Think about how much you’d like to give – anyone can leave a gift in their will, no matter how small or large, it will make a huge difference to the lives of the families that we help.

Types of gift:

Pecuniary Gift – a specific amount of money, for example £100

Residuary Gift – a percentage of your residue (what is left of your estate following other gifts, debts and fees), for example: 5% of your residue.

Specific Gift – a specific item, for example: jewellery, antiques or collectibles.

How to leave a gift:

Talk to a solicitor – you can find a list of solicitors on the Law Society website.

Already have a will? – You can add a gift to Aiming Higher by using a codicil form
