Remember A Charity was formed in 2000 and now has over 140 of the UK’s favourite charities, who work together to encourage more people to consider leaving a charitable gift in their Will, once they’ve looked after their family and friends. Together, we aim to do what no single charity can do alone, making legacy giving a social norm.
It’s a common myth that only the rich and famous leave money to charity when they die. This couldn’t be any further from the truth.
The reality is without the gifts left in Wills by people like you, many of the charities we know and support today wouldn’t even exist.
Remember A Charity was founded on the basis that no one charity can achieve market growth alone.
It is only by pooling our resources and working together that we can grow the market and ultimately change the course of legacy giving nationwide. And that’s why we need your support.
As a professional adviser, you know that giving your clients the best advice means everything. We know that 70% of the British public support a charity during their lifetime. The issue is that only 7% think to include these in their Will.
Remember A Charity in your Will Week is an annual awareness week designed to encourage more people to take a moment to consider leaving a gift to charity when writing a Will.
This year’s week will take place from 8-14 September 2014.
