Leave a gift in your Will

When we leave a gift in our will, our values live on forever.

Stephen Fry

Leaving a gift in your Will is one of the most valuable ways you can help us to make Suffolk the best place in the world to talk about and take care of mental health. 

Taking care of those close to you will be your priority, we hope you may then consider leaving a gift to Suffolk Mind. Legacies do not need to be big, every gift in every Will makes a difference, we welcome all support.

What are the different ways I can leave a gift?

There are three different ways to leave a gift in your will (also known as a legacy or bequest):

  • A residuary legacy is all or part of what remains of your estate when all other gifts have been distributed.
  • A pecuniary legacy is a set amount of money.
  • A specific legacy is a particular item of value, such as jewelry or piece of art.

How do I leave a gift in my will?

It is important that you have an up-to-date and professionally written Will that truly reflects your wishes. 

If you don't have a Will... Making one is simple to do and your Solicitor can help you. We can help by providing some suggested wording to reflect your wish to leave a gift to Suffolk Mind.

If you already have a Will... It’s important to keep this up to date. A change of circumstances could make your Will invalid so you should check your Will regularly to make sure it still reflects your wishes. If you do need to make a change this may be a good time to include Suffolk Mind.  It is a simple process to make an amendment and include a gift to Suffolk Mind. Depending on the significance of the changes you’d like to make to an existing Will, it may be possible to use a codicil to make your amendments, a solicitor can advise on the best course of action.

If you would like us to post a codicil form to you or suggested wording to reflect your wishes, email carole.thain@suffokmind.org.uk.
