Remember A Charity have today launched a new campaign supporter scheme to increase the incidence of charitable legacies in Wills.\r\n\r\nThe campaign supporter scheme is free to join, and offers a series of benefits for professional advisors in exchange for their support of Remember A Charity.\r\n\r\nThe scheme, aimed solely at Wills and probate solicitors and other qualified will-writing practitioners, \u00a0seeks to raise the frequency of charitable gifts in wills by 4% to raise an extra \u00a31 billion for charity each year.\r\n\r\nGifts in wills form the foundation of charities in the UK, with many depending on them to survive. Yet while 74% of the UK supports charities, only 7% currently leaves a charitable legacy.\r\n\r\nResearch has shown that 35% of people would happily leave a charitable gift in their Will once they have looked after their family and friends, and professional advisors who mention the option of a charitable gift to their clients write more Wills containing a charitable bequest. However, only 25% of advisers always mention the option of a charitable gift. The scheme encourages professional advisers to ask all their clients to consider leaving a gift to charity in their Will, as many people simply aren\u2019t aware of this form of giving.\r\n\r\nNaomi Pinder, a Remember A Charity campaign supporter from Quality Solicitors Jackson & Canter Liverpool said: \u201cSometimes clients have already thought about making charitable legacies, but often they simply haven\u2019t considered the possibility of including charitable gifts. I raise the question thereby opening a conversation and discussion. I think that clients often feel a great sense of peace and well being knowing that their legacy benefits those less fortunate\u201d.\r\n\r\nAll companies, partnerships and sole practitioners signing up to the scheme will have their details displayed on the Remember A Charity website. They will also be given a certificate to show their support for the campaign, and access to other supporting materials including the Remember A Charity Campaign Supporter logo and Practitioner\u2019s Guide.\r\n\r\nFor further information about the scheme please take a look at our campaign supporter pages or contact Remember A Charity on 020 7840 1030.
