Leaving a legacy to Sue Young Cancer Support
Useful information about making your Will or updating a Will you already have.
Why everyone needs a valid Will
Your Will is a unique opportunity to provide for the ones you love and care about. Without a Will, the law will determine how your estate is distributed. A properly drafted and valid Will means that people and the charitable causes you care about will benefit.
If you already have a Will
Remember to review it regularly to make sure those left behind will know your current wishes. This information will help you decide if you need to make changes and explain how you can do so.
If you don’t already have a Will
You would be well advised to have one drawn up, it is best to have a Will drawn up professionally by a solicitor or Will writing service which is not that expensive. Sue Young Cancer Support works together with local professionals who can help.
Changing and updating your Will
Most people find their circumstances change as time goes by and some of the provisions in their Will become irrelevant or inappropriate. New children or grandchildren, nephews or nieces may be born, older relatives may pass or changes within the family might affect the way in which you wish your estate to be distributed.
Equally, of course there may be significant changes in your own property or wealth, which could alter your intentions. In addition, certain events, such as getting divorced may make your Will, or certain provisions of your Will, invalid, so you should make a new one. By reviewing your Will every few years, you can make sure that it remains up to date and clearly expresses your wishes. If you wish to make changes to your Will, there are two ways of doing this. To make significant and wide ranging alterations, it is usually best to make a new Will to replace the old one. However, lesser changes can be made using a Codicil -a separate legal document which is kept with your Will.
Including Sue Young Cancer Support in your Will
By leaving a legacy to Sue Young Cancer Support you will be helping ensure that local people affected by cancer receive support when they need it most for further generations.
There are four ways of leaving a legacy:
A Pecuniary Bequest
A type of gift is a fixed amount of money. Please note that the value of pecuniary bequest will decrease in the time as the cost of living increases. If you wish to leave a pecuniary bequest to help our work, ask your solicitor/Will writer to use the following wording:
I give the following pecuniary bequest absolutely free of all taxes to Sue Young Cancer Support, Helen Webb House, 35 Westleigh Road, Leicester, LE3 0HH.
Registered Charity Number 1124057
The sum of £……… (Figures and words) for its general purpose.
A Specific Bequest
A specific bequest is when you make a gift of a particular item of property, shares, jewellery or furniture/ it must be clearly identified in your Will as below:
I give Sue Young Cancer Support, Helen Webb House, 35 Westleigh Road, Leicester, LE3 0HH (registered Charity Number 1124057) my………. (Description) for general purpose.
A Residuary Bequest
This is a gift made from remainder of your estate once any pecuniary and specific bequests have been made, and after any depts., liabilities and tax have been paid.it can be ente4red in your Will:
I give Sue Young Cancer Support, Helen Webb House, 35 Westleigh Road, Leicester, LE3 0HH (Registered Charity Number 1124057) all (or a share) of the residue of my estate for its general purpose.
A Contingent Bequest
This gift in your Will that depends on the occurrence of an event which may or may not happen. An example is a bequest to charity which applies only if other beneficiaries names in the Will die before the Testator (person who makes the Will). Your solicitor will be able to advice you on the correct wording.
A properly drafted Will, validly executed, may assist in reducing your tax liability on death, if it records a legacy left to a registered charity. That means you can do more for the causes you believe in and lose less to the taxman!
