The funds we receive from Wills are a very special form of support, whatever their size.
Remember The Aldingbourne Trust in your will Help us continue our work by leaving a legacy in your will. Gifts in our supporters’ wills are making a HUGE difference.
Make a free online will With our partner makeawillonline.co.uk, we offer a free online wills service: www.makeawillonline.co.uk/aldingbourne. All wills are checked by a will-writer who is a member of the Society of Will Writers. To help us with our campaign, details of your legacy will be shared with us: your name, your contact details, the amount of the legacy and the date you made the will. We may contact you to thank you and to keep you updated with information about us.
If you already have a will… If you do already have a will and want to leave a gift to us, contact your solicitor and let them know your intentions. You can work with them either to (a) make a new will or (b) a shorter and less expensive "codicil".
Please ensure that your solicitor uses our full name: The Aldingbourne Trust, our charity number: 276484, and our registered address: The Aldingbourne Trust, Blackmill Lane, Norton, Chichester, PO18 0JP.
If you don’t currently have a will… If you haven't already made a will you can make one and leave a gift of a specific amount of money or a proportion of your estate to us and other charities. Once your family and friends are catered for, anything you can provide us will make a huge difference to our work.
Did you know that people who leave more than 10% of their estate to charity receive inheritance tax benefits?
If your estate is liable for inheritance tax (see here), we suggest you speak to your solicitor to discuss making a will and leaving a gift to us. If you don't have a solicitor, you can go to http://solicitors.lawsociety.org.uk/ to search for a local solicitor.
If you have complicated needs in your will - for example: dependent relatives/ friends, property overseas, trust income or ongoing legal issues - we suggest you speak to a solicitor.
