Leaving a gift to a charity in your Will can be a great way to provide generous support which might ordinarily be outside your financial means. As with any other gift in your Will, it is important to make sure that any charitable gift is clear, well considered and carefully drafted to ensure that your wishes are carried out after you have died.
Here are some of the key issues that you may wish to consider:
Why give to a charity in your Will?
Which charity to choose?
Purpose of donation
Family Provision Claims
