Leaving a gift in your Will: FAQS

Making a Will can be confusing, here are some of the most common questions and and answers about how the will making process works.

Why Do I Need to write a will?
If you do not have a will when you pass away, your money, shares, savings or investments, property and personal possessions (your estate) will be shared out according to the law instead of your wishes. This can mean they pass to someone you hadn’t intended to – or that someone you want to pass things on to ends up with nothing

Additionally any Inheritance Tax that your estate has to pay might be higher than it would be if you had made a will. Finally if you die with no living close relatives, your whole estate will belong to the Crown or to the government. This law is called bona vacantia.

With an up-to-date Will, you can have peace of mind that the people and causes that matter to you have been looked
after the way you choose.

Do I have enough money to leave a legacy?
Amy amount of money left in your Will to the Walking With Giants Foundation, is so vital to our work and we are very grateful to everyone who chooses to support us in this way. Gifts in Wills are absolutely very important to us and allows us to continue our work to positively change the lives individuals and families affected by Microcephalic Primordial Dwarfism, now and in the future.
I already have a Will, How do I include a gift to the Walking With Giants Foundation in it?

If you’ve already have an existing Will in place, adding a gift to the Walking With Giants Foundation is simple process and you have two options:

  • You could write a new Will, in many situations, the most effective way is to start again and write a new one. Once a new Will is written, it makes any Wills made by you in the past void.
  • Codicil – This document provides an easy way to make simple additions or amendments to an existing Will, such as adding a gift to charity or changing the amount of a fixed money gift. If you choose to use a Codicil, be careful that if you do then go on to make a new Will, it clearly states that you are revoking all Wills and Codicils previously made.

Whatever option you choose, we’d recommend using a solicitor, even if you think the changes are straightforward!

I've included a gift in my Will to the Walking With Giants Foundation, do I need to let you know?
No you do not, however we would love to hear from you because we value the opportunity to thank our supporters personally. Additionally awareness of legacies like this helps us plan financially for the future as a charity.

Polite Notice:

The Walking With Giants Foundation does not provide financial or legal advice. We recommends that you contact a financial adviser or lawyer for advice on leaving a legacy to a charity.
