Leave a Gift

Leave a giftGifts left to charities in wills – usually known as legacies – don’t need to be large, and they don’t prevent you from taking care of your family and loved ones. In fact, a legacy to a charity can ease the burden of inheritance tax.

Legacies are becoming an increasingly important part of income for all charities, including Citizens Advice.   Leaving a legacy to your local Citizens Advice centre will help make sure that we are still here, down the years to come, for your family, friends and others in the community.

What Do I Do?

Making or changing a will is easier than you think, although we recommend that you use a solicitor. That way you can make your wishes are clear and have taken into account any legal requirements that you may not be aware might affect your circumstances.  Simply give your solicitor the name of your local advice centre, its registered address, and charity number so they can write the necessary clause in your will.

Amazingly, 1 in 5 people in the UK die without a Will, causing many problems for their loved ones. Details on making a Will are a click away by visiting the Citizens Advice online help service.

If you would like to talk to someone about leaving a legacy to Citizens Advice, please contact your solicitor, or write to the Manager at your local Citizens Advice centre.

Your legacy will mean that we can continue our vital work supporting your loved ones and the wider community for many years to come.
