In response to today’s Times story on legacy giving, Remember A Charity and The Institute of Fundraising said:
“We are a generous nation and charities are immensely grateful to the thousands of donors who choose to leave a gift in their Will to their favourite causes every year. Without this support, many vital services that we rely on would not exist. Charities have a legal duty to manage these gifts, ensuring that the wishes of the donor are realised.
“We know that charities will always seek to handle a donor’s gift in a sensitive manner, ensuring that this is approached in a compassionate and appropriate way. We will continue to work with charities to help them uphold the highest standards expected of us.”
