Remember A Charity in your Will Week is an annual awareness week designed to encourage more people to consider leaving a gift to charity when writing a will.
Three-quarters of us regularly give to charity in our lifetimes, yet only seven per cent currently include a charity when writing a will. Nevertheless, gifts in wills are still the foundation of many of the UK’s charities, creating almost £2 billion each year, the equivalent of 19 Comic Reliefs. Without this income, many charities would simply not exist and others would have to cut crucial services.
This year’s Remember A Charity in your Will Week takes place from 7 to 13 September.
