Leaving a gift to charity is a wonderful way for your generosity to last beyond your own lifetime.
By putting a gift to The Harbour in your will, you can help ensure others don’t have to face life-threatening illness alone.
If you decide to leave a legacy in your will to The Harbour, all you have to write is:
‘I give X% of the residue of my estate/the sum of £….. (whichever applies) to The Harbour (registered charity number 1008360) of 30 Frogmore Street, Bristol, BS1 5NA, for its general purposes. I further direct that the receipt of the person who professes to be the Treasurer or other proper office of the Charity shall be full and sufficient discharge for the said legacy’.
You may want to take this text with you when you visit your solicitor. We are also very happy to accept in memorandum donations. You can create your In Memoriam fundraising page at www.justgiving.com/the-harbour.
As a small charity, a little goes a long way. A tiny percentage of someone’s estate can make a transformational difference to a charity like The Harbour.
Leaving a legacy is easy to do, it’s tax effective, and it enables us to offer services long into the future. Changing your will is clearly a private matter, but if you are happy to keep us informed about any decision relating to The Harbour, we would greatly appreciate it and it would give us a chance to say thank you. Any information you provide will, of course, remain strictly confidential.
