Leave a gift in your will
Kidscape believes that all children should be able to grow up in a world free from bullying and abuse, and that all adults should keep children safe and help them to reach their full potential.
If you feel strongly in our cause, thinking of Kidscape in your will can help to ensure that our work is able to continue. Not only is this a wonderful gift to leave, you will also be able to take comfort in knowing that your charitable actions will continue after you have gone.
What kind of gift can I leave?
There are two main types of gift that people leave in their wills, residual and pecuniary.
Residual. This type of donation is made to a charity after the needs of your nearest and dearest have been met. In other words, once you have paid any money you owe and given legacies to specific friends or family, a residual legacy leaves everything remaining to your chosen charity. This can also include property, land and other non-financial assets.
Pecuniary. This is a specified sum of money that is written into your will, and is the most common type of gift made to charities.
How do I write a will?
It is very important that you write your will with the assistance of a legal professional. If you already have a will but would like to make changes, you may not need to start again. This is something that a professional advisor can discuss with you.
More information about writing your will can be found on the Gov.uk website.
How will my gift be spent?
When leaving a charitable legacy, you can have control of how your money is spent. For example, you may wish to support a certain area of our work or a specific project.
