Leave a gift in your Will

We give gifts to honor important milestones in life. Birthdays, graduations, weddings - even moving house. It’s part of celebrating what we value in life.

Leaving a gift in your Will is another way to demonstrate who and what is most important to you. This might mean leaving a gift for a charity. It’s often called ‘making a charitable bequest’ and can be the most profound gift you ever give.

There are three major types of bequests:

  • A specific bequest is a gift of a particular asset such as a house, furniture or jewellery.
  • A general bequest is usually a sum of money or a percentage of the value of your estate.
  • A residual bequest includes anything remaining in your estate (or a percentage thereof) after the specific and general bequests have been made.
