One of the most profound ways you can support charities long into the future is to leave them gift in your Will. Simply put, charities rely on gifts in Wills to continue their work.
This week is ‘Remember a Charity Week’. After you’ve taken care of loved ones, we’d like to ask you to remember KLS by leaving us a gift in your Will. This will help us deliver all of our services for children, young people, families, refugees and older people in Battersea and the wider Wandsworth communities for future generations to come.
Making a Will is your way of communicating what you would like to happen with your property, possessions and money once you pass away. If you don’t make a Will, the law will decide who will receive what, and that may not be in line with your wishes. Therefore, by writing a Will you are putting yourself in the driver’s seat and deciding on the impact you want to have beyond your years.
More reasons to leave a gift in your Will
- Makes us happier: People who leave a gift to charity in their Will get a huge amount of satisfaction knowing that their values and beliefs will be passed on to future generations.
- Help the work live on: Gifts in Wills allow charities to continue providing vital services, whether it’s researching cures for cancer, supporting vulnerable people or taking care of animals.
- Reduce inheritance tax: A gift to charity is free from inheritance tax and if you leave more than 10% of your entire estate to charity then the total amount of inheritance tax you pay reduces from 40% to 36%.
- Remember a loved one: Many people choose to leave a gift to a charity that was important to a loved one, to keep their memory alive.
The donation can be as small or large as you like – every gift makes a big difference.
If KLS has touched your life, or someone you care about, then please consider leaving us a gift in your Will.
By remembering KLS in this way, you’re ensuring that our work lives on.
Thank you so much.
