Leaving a charitable gift in your Will is a brilliant way of supporting your favourite charity, helping them to continue their work long into the future. Indeed, many charities wouldn’t survive without gifts in Wills.
As a registered charity, the BIS can also be supported in this way. Here are some free, easy-to-use services that can help with all aspects of making a Will, as well as how to remember your chosen charity.
Remember a Charity, a service from the Institute of Fundraising, has clear, step-by-step guides on both making a will: https://www.rememberacharity.org.uk/making-a-will/ and leaving a gift to charity: https://www.rememberacharity.org.uk/leaving-a-gift/how-to-leave-a-gift-in-your-will/.
Remember a Charity also enables you write your Will, online and for free, with the help of the online Wills provider Bequeathed. The service can be accessed directly here: https://www.bequeathed.org/racfree.
To get expert advice on the drafting of a Will, The Law Society of England and Wales provides a ‘Find a Solicitor’ service, which can be filtered based on your location and accessibility needs: https://solicitors.lawsociety.org.uk/.
