A charitable Legacy
Leaving a charitable legacy that will support the children and young people at Free Your Mind is an incredible thing to do and leaves you achieving amazing things when you are gone. Thank you for considering leaving us a gift in your will. Gifts of all sizes are gratefully received and are vital to the continuation of our work.
By leaving a gift to Free Your Mind, you are enabling us to continue to help children and young people rebuild their lives following the trauma of domestic abuse for years to come. Imagine a future where you continue playing a part in helping hundreds of children and young people through some of the toughest times, allowing us to reach those who need our support the most.
It’s important to keep your Will up to date. If your circumstances have changed, it may be a good time to review your Will to make sure it still reflects your wishes.
If you have already written your will and wish to add a charitable gift to us, you can do so by adding a codicil. A codicil is an addition or an amendment to your Will without having to re-write it. Your solicitor can advise on the best course of action.
Think about what type of gift you want to leave to your chosen charities, such as Free Your Mind. There are different types of gift you can leave. We are grateful for all types of support. Speak to your solicitor if you’re interested in leaving an alternative type of gift. If you would like your gift to be spent in a specific way at Free Your Mind, please speak to us.
A share of Your Estate - After you have provided for your loved ones, you can leave a share of what remains to charity. This is known as a ‘residuary gift’.
A Cash Gift - This is when you leave an exact sum of money to a charity. It's known as a 'pecuniary gift'.
A Specific Gift - This could be anything you own, such as jewellery.
A Gift in Trust - You can leave a gift for someone to use over a period of time. When the time has ended, the gift can be passed on to other recipients, such as a charity.
If you choose to leave a charitable gift in your will to Free Your mind, please do let us know and it helps us to plan for the ahead and to be able to personally thank you for your generosity. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
