Leave a Gift to Tresillian in your Will
Leaving a bequest in your Will is an enduring way to help fulfil our mission to ensure that every child has the best start in life. Your generous gift will allow more parents to receive trustworthy, practical advice to care for their precious ones.
Including a bequest in your Will is simple. You can either include it when you or your solicitor write your Will or add an amendment to an existing Will.
What is a Bequest?
A bequest is a sum of money or particular items that are given as gifts upon death. Making a bequest in your Will offers you the chance to help others long after you are gone.
Types of Bequests
There are various forms of bequest you might consider, including:
- Residuary – a gift that consists of the remainder of your estate (once family and friends have been provided for and any taxes and charges are settled).
- Percentage – a gift in the form of a specified percentage of your estate.
- Specific – a gift that is a specified amount of money or other items such as property, art or shares.
You may also donate a combination of the above gifts.
Who should prepare my Will?
Making a will can be emotional, but it is essential to make your wishes known.
We recommend that you speak to a qualified solicitor or legal practitioner about your Will to ensure it will be legally recognised and accurately reflect your intentions. It is also advisable to regularly review your Will to reflect any change in circumstances.
