BEQUESTS & DONATING 

A bequest or a gift in your Will is one of the most enduring gifts you can leave behind. It means your generosity lives on in future generations. 

Bequests are a gift passed to an organisation or individual as part of your Will, a legal document that outlines your wishes when you die and is the legacy that you leave.

HOW DOES A BEQUEST WORK? 

All your financial assets, savings, properties, belongings, assets (like stocks and bonds) form what is known as your estate. You can choose how you would like to divide up your estate with the executor of your Will after you die. A person or organisation you choose to leave a bequest to is known as a beneficiary. 

WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF BEQUESTS?

There are four main types of bequests you can leave in your Will:

1)  Residual: This is the remainder of your estate after you leave gifts to loved ones

2)  Percentage or fractional: This is a gift expressed as a percentage of your estate

3)  Pecuniary: This is a specific gift that can be money, property, stocks or shares

4)  Whole estate: This comprises your entire estate

WHO CAN I LEAVE A BEQUEST TO?

You can choose to leave a bequest to a person or organisation like BCEF, or multiple people and organisations, depending on how you would like to divide up your estate. When making the decision of who, or what organisation, to leave a bequest to, it is important to consider the legacy you would like to pass on to future generations. 

Safeguarding your loved ones, progressing the causes you’re passionate about, and leaving a lasting impact on the lives of others, are all important considerations to make when leaving a bequest. 

HOW DO I LEAVE A BEQUEST?

A bequest will need to be written into your Will. If you have a pre-existing Will, you will need to update the wording in your Will to include a bequest to a loved one or an organisation such as BCEF.

WHY MAKE A BEQUEST TO A CHARITY? 

There are plenty of reasons you might choose to leave a bequest to a charity in your Will. A bequest to charity is a powerful way to leave behind a lasting impact in your honour or in the memory of a loved one. It’s the last gift you’ll give to the people and causes who need it most. 

While leaving a gift to family and friends has the obvious benefit of ensuring your loved ones are looked after when you die, leaving a bequest to a charity in your Will can positively impact the lives of people you’ve never met, who you may share a common bond with. 

Thank you!
