After you’ve provided for your loved ones, there are a various ways you can choose to leave a gift to a charity in your will – this could be a residuary or pecuniary gift. Although it may be a hard decision to decide which charity to leave a gift to, the process is very simple. We’ve suggested wording below that you can ask your solicitor or legal professional to add to your will depending on the type of gift you’d like to leave:

A share of your estate:  Known as a residuary gift, this is a percentage of everything you own, minus any debts. “I leave _______ per cent of the residue of my real and personal estate to The Parks Foundation, The Cricket Pavilion, Winton Recreation Ground, Bournemouth, BH9 1BX, registered charity number: 1159939.”

A cash gift:  Known as a pecuniary gift, you could leave a set sum of money in your will. “I leave the sum of ______(in words) pounds £____ (in figures) to The Parks Foundation, The Cricket Pavilion, Winton Recreation Ground, Bournemouth, BH9 1BX, registered charity number: 1159939.”

A specific gift:  Also known as a pecuniary gift, you may choose to leave a gift that’s not money. This could be anything from gardening tools or a valuable saleable item such as jewellery or furniture. You can also state where you would like this gift to be donated to. “I leave ______to The Parks Foundation, The Cricket Pavilion, Winton Recreation Ground, Bournemouth, BH9 1BX, registered charity number: 1159939.”
