LEAVING A GIFT IN YOUR WILL
Leaving a gift to Mummy’s Star is a wonderful way to support future generations of women
who are diagnosed with cancer during pregnancy, birth, loss and beyond
The only way to ensure your wishes are followed when the time comes, is to write a Will. We know that it may feel daunting or you may feel too young to think about writing a Will, but it such a worthwhile thing to do. You and your and loved ones can feel secure and enjoy peace of mind knowing that your wishes will be carried out.
Here are a few things to consider when you think about writing your Will:
Family comes first
You don’t have to choose between looking after your loved ones or supporting our work. You can include family, friends and your favourite charities in your Will. Every gift, no matter how big or small, has the power to make a real and lasting difference.
Your Will, your wishes
Making a Will is easy to put off, but it’s the only way to make sure your wishes are carried out after you have gone. Without one, you may leave your loved ones facing uncertainty and having to make difficult decisions on your behalf.
Good financial sense
Leaving a gift to charity in your Will can reduce the amount of Inheritance Tax that is paid on your estate, meaning you can make an even greater difference to your loved ones and the women we support.
There are also different ways you can leave a gift in your Will:
The amount left over from your estate after all other bequests have been made and all costs and debts are cleared. You can leave the total residue to one beneficiary or you can dictate a % share to go to numerous different beneficiaries.
A gift that is a specific sum of money that you state in your Will.
A named item that is left as a gift to someone in your Will. Often a piece of jewellery or painting, a specific bequest is a good way to pass on cherished belongings to loved ones.
