Gifts in Wills
How easy is it to add a charity beneficiary to your Will?
Writing a Will and keeping it up to date is your opportunity to ensure your wishes are met after you are gone. For peace of mind, and the ensure your Will is legally binding, finding a professional is often best.
Whether through a solicitor, will writer, or bank, simple Wills can start from £80.
When you create your Will, designate Dementia Support as a beneficiary of your assets and assign a gift. You can also let us know that you’ve thought of us in your estate plans.
I already have a Will, can I change it?
If you already have a Will, you can talk to your solicitor about making an amendment, known as a Codicil. This usually costs around £30 - £70, and simpler than writing a new Will.
Is there a benefit or incentive to leave a gift in your Will?
Yes! You could get less Inheritance Tax. Gifts to charities are removed before the value of your estate is addressed for tax. Leaving a gift can help reduce the amount of Inheritance Tax owed.
