Leave a Legacy
Leave a lasting legacy of hope that will build brighter futures for generations to come.
Most of us do not want to think about death, we struggle enough with thinking about growing older! So, making plans for what you leave to who in your Will is likely to be the last thing on your mind.
When the time comes we will be leaving everything behind, so it is worth thinking about how you will make the greatest investment of your life! Of course, If you have dependents you will want to ensure that they are looked after, however this is also your best opportunity to invest in the causes and people that you care about.
A gift in your Will to Signpost International can make a huge difference to the people that we serve. This is because:
Legacies are additional to the money we raise each year to change the lives of the poorest and to run the charity. As you would expect our budgets are tight and we want to put as much of our income as we can into the task of tackling poverty. So extra income can go straight to the people and the projects that we are serving on the ground.
Legacies can unlock other money. When we look for funding for the urgent projects that we run we find that large funders will seek to `match` other funds that have been raised. The gift of a legacy can be used to part fund a bigger project if other funders can match it. This makes a large individual gift worth 2 or 3 times more and will help many more people to build a better future for themselves and their families.
If you are ready to make a Will, please consider leaving a gift to Signpost International. In Scotland, you can make a Will in September through Will Relief Scotland www.willreliefscotland.co.uk and the solicitor will draw up your Will for a donation to charity.
