Did you know that gifts in Wills are fundamental to the amazing work of many charities?
In fact, income from gifts in Wills is worth more than £2.5 billion a year to charities in the UK. Many charities rely on these gifts to help them carry out their vital work.
Unfortunately there is evidence of a disconnect between people’s intentions to give money in their Wills, and those doing so. Research shows that 35% of those surveyed wanted to leave money to charity in their Will, but only 6.3% do.
