What is legacy giving?
How do I arrange this?
You will need to make a will, or update an existing will.
There are a number of schemes for free will writing and low-cost will writing.
To give a share of your estate to theParish of WMC, use this wording:
“I give ______ % of my residuary estate free of all taxes to The Parish of Winton, Moordown and Charminster (registered charity number 1186540) in the Diocese of Winchester for its general purposes, and I declare that the receipt of an officer of the Parochial Church Council shall be a sufficient discharge to my executors and trustees.”
Gifts from legacies can make an enormous difference to the life of the church and the impact on our local community. Even a small percentage of the residuary estate can be a sizeable amount, and contribute significantly to our work within the community, with the homeless and vulnerable, enable special events and help resource our ministry.
