Your Charity Lottery

Leave a gift in your will

This is known as a residuary legacy and it is stated as all or as a percentage (%) of your remaining estate, once all fees, outstanding costs and other gifts have been taken care of. Even a small percentage of your estate, after providing for family and loved ones, can make a real difference.

Making a gift of a fixed sum of money

This is called a pecuniary legacy.  You can link your legacy to the Retail Price Index to ensure that the value of the gift you make today is worth the same in the future.  This will prevent your gift from decreasing in value over time.

Leaving a gift other than money

A gift called a specific legacy enables you to leave specific assets such as property, stocks and shares or other valuables if you so wish.

Postponing your gift

Known as a reversionary legacy, this gift allows you to leave your estate, or part of it, on trust for the benefit of a particular person during their lifetime. They benefit from using the assets, or receiving the income from them, during their life. Upon their death, the assets pass to other chosen beneficiaries (called ‘reversionary beneficiaries’) such as the Health Way Foundation.

Why donate?

Give in memory

Donating in memory of a loved one can be a special way to honour a special person during a difficult time. There are many ways you can create a lasting tribute to their memory, while supporting a charity that is dedicated to unforgettable care.‚Äč
