Past supporters have left us a gift in their will, both large and small, to leave a long lasting legacy to Reconstructive Surgery in Africa
Leaving us a gift in your will can help us to continue our work of establishing essential and lasting Reconstructive Surgery units in West Africa. This will help thousands of people in generations to come. Please consider doing so if you can.
Why a Will is important
Many people never make a Will because they assume everything will be passed on to their spouse or children. This isn’t always the case. It is essential that you make plans for the money you leave so that it benefits the people and causes that you want it to.
Including a Charity in your Will
Any money you leave a charity is not subject to inheritance tax. By making a gift to Resurge Africa you will not only help the Charity but could also substantially reduce the amount of tax payable on your estate.
Ways you could help Resurge Africa through your Will
- By ensuring that you do make a Will that names the Trust in it.
- By adding a codicil to your existing Will to include a gift to the Trust.
- By making a gift of a specific item of property to the Trust in your Will.
Your solicitor can advise you how to do any of these things or contact the telephone number below if you would like information on drawing up a Will.
Ways your Company Pension could benefit Resurge Africa
If you belong to a company pension scheme, you can complete an “expression of wish” form to benefit Resurge Africa or any other chosen charity. In the event of your death, part or all of the life insurance benefit will be paid to your chosen charity. This is an easy legal process but you should check with your employer that the company pension scheme is set up to do this.
