Legacies from wills represent a vital source of income for charities. In 2017 alone some £2.8bn was recorded as being left to charities across the UK.
Maximising the potential for your charity to receive legacies could make a significant difference to the work you can undertake and the support you can provide. A badly drafted legacy, or a poorly advised testator, could lead to your charity missing out on a legacy, or having to embark on expensive litigation to ensure the charity receives what the testator desired.
GA Solicitors has worked with a number of charities to assist them in providing appropriate wording for inclusion in both their online and hard copy resources. This ensures that testators looking to leave a legacy can do so using the correct wording and terminology, simplifying the process and ensuring that a testator’s wishes are fulfilled and your charity receives the legacy without hassle.
By working closely with your charity as your preferred legal adviser we can ensure that any testator who seeks our professional advice to write their will leaves an accurate and effective legacy.
