Leaving a gift in your Will is one of the most valuable ways you can help make Suffolk the best place in the world to talk about and take care of mental health.
Different ways to 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 – all or part of what remains of your estate when all other gifts have been distributed.
- A pecuniary legacy – a set amount of money.
- A specific legacy – an item of value, such as jewellery or piece of art.
How do I leave a gift in my will?
If you don’t have a Will… Making one is simple and your solicitor can help. We can help by providing some suggested wording to reflect your wish.
If you already have a Will… A change of circumstances could make your Will invalid so make sure it still reflects your wishes. If you need to make a change, it is a simple process to make an amendment, this may be a good time to include a gift to Suffolk Mind. It may be possible to use a codicil to make your amendments, a solicitor can advise on the best course of action.
We cannot recommend a Solicitor but can provide details of local Solicitors that may offer a discounted service if you are leaving a gift to support our charity work.
We understand that making a Will is a private matter, but if you would like to let us know you are leaving Suffolk Mind gift we would be grateful. This helps us plan for the future and gives us the opportunity to thank you for your generosity.
If you have any queries or would like to discuss any aspects of leaving a gift in your Will, please call 0300 111 6000 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
