We recognise that your first priority when making a Will is to provide for your loved ones. Many people find that even after they've done this they can leave a gift in their Will to charity.
Leaving a gift in your Will is one of the most valuable and lasting ways you can support Red Cross. There are a number of different ways you can remember the Red Cross in your Will.
You can leave share of your estate
A good way to help is to leave a proportion of what is left of your estate after you have provided for your loved ones. This type of gift is (known as a residuary bequest) is easy to add to add to an existing Will without interfering with specific sums you have left to family or friends. It also has the advantage that it will not be affected by inflation. Just a small percentage of 1 - 5% or more of your estate can make a difference.
You can leave a fixed sum of money
You may wish to leave us a fixed sum of money (known as a pecuniary bequest). Please remember that this type of gift does not allow for changes in your circumstances or inflation.
You can leave a specific item
You may wish to leave us a particular item (known as a specific bequest), which can be sold to support our work. It could be property or an item of value such as real estate, art or a piece of jewellery.
