Legacies

Legacies are an invaluable source of income for the charity and without them we would not be able to fund the hospice in the way that we are currently able to do.

Please consider leaving a gift in your will to enable us to continue to provide this much needed service. Inheritance tax is not payable on any gift made to a charity in your will and from April 2012 a reduced rate of Inheritance Tax of 36% (standard rate 40%) applies to estates leaving a legacy of 10% or more of the value of the estate to charity.

Although there are many options, the pecuniary gift and the residuary gift are the most popular.

Pecuniary gift:

A pecuniary gift is a fixed sum of money. These sums, however large or small, make a considerable difference to the charity's income. You may ask your solicitor how to ensure that your gift will be worth the same after your death as it is today.

Residuary gift:

A residuary gift means that the charity will receive all or part of whatever is left from your estate after all other gifts have been distributed.

It is advisable that for drafting a new will, or for making an alteration to an existing one, you should contact your solicitor who will also be able to advise you on other ways of leaving gifts to the charity.

We are delighted to be working with Parker Bullen Solicitors who have kindly offered to donate 10% of their Will preparation fee to us, if a gift in a Will is left to Salisbury Hospice Charity. For more information about making a Will, please contact Stewart Donald on 01722 412000 or visit their website www.parkerbullen.co.uk.

If you would like to discuss the ways in which a legacy might benefit the charity, please contact Jane Winstanley on 01722 342655.

If you do consider leaving us a gift in your will, please include our full name - Salisbury Hospice Charity - and our registered charity number 1123314.
