Legacies

Anyone can leave money to a charity in their will – this is also known as a legacy. Once your family and friends are looked after, you might want to consider the possibility of leaving a legacy to Soundabout. 

Leaving a gift in your Will, no matter the size, can help us to continue to provide our life-changing services to Learning Disabled people with complex support needs.  

By remembering Soundabout in this way you;

  1. help to ensure our work continues
  2. can reduce the amount of inheritance tax your heirs pay.

You can write a will with a professional solicitor who can advise you on how to leave a gift to charity. If you already have a will, your solicitor can simply add the legacy you would like to leave to it (called a codicil).

Once you choose to support Soundabout in your Will there are a few ways you can do it:

Residuary Gift

A popular and straightforward way is to leave a percentage of your estate, known as a residuary gift. 

It protects the other parties in your Will and remains unaffected by inflation and other changes.

Pecuniary Gift

Or you may want to leave a fixed sum of cash, called a pecuniary gift.

You are simply stating that you wish to leave a set amount to a charity.

Specific Gift

Finally, you may want to leave a specific gift or item to a charity.

If you’d like to talk through anything, we’d be happy to call you at a time that’s right for you, just email us to arrange a call back on info@soundabout.org.uk.
