One of the most valuable ways you can contribute to the vital work of N I Chest Heart & Stroke is by leaving us a bequest in your will. Making a will takes care of your family’s welfare and provides an opportunity to consider leaving a lasting gift to support our work. You can leave a legacy that will make a real difference to the lives of thousands of people.
There are several options when drawing up a will. You can leave a residual bequest. This is what is left in your estate after all other gifts, taxes and debts have been paid.
Or you might want to make a pecuniary gift, which is a specific sum of money. Gifts left to charity in a will are free from Inheritance tax, which may help if your final estate exceeds the current tax allowance of £325,000. The total amount of the gift is deducted from the estate before tax is calculated.
