Gifts in wills

Leaving a gift to RSBC in your will

A will is a good way to plan for the future needs of your family and loved ones – by leaving a gift in your will to RSBC, you can create a better future for blind and partially sighted children and their families too.

Different ways of including RSBC in your will

There are lots of ways you can leave a gift in your will to us:

  • A cash gift. You can leave a fixed amount of money to RSBC. Because of inflation the value of a fixed cash gift will decrease over time, so you may want to review cash gifts from time to time

 

  • A residuary gift. After giving what you want to friends and family, you can leave what’s left (or a percentage of what’s left) to RSBC. This sort of gift will keep its value over time

 

  • In a trust. You can set aside a sum in your will which is left in a trust fund and given to RSBC when the term of the trust fund ends. You can also do this in the deed of any trust you make in your lifetime

 

  • A codicil. If you already have a will and would like to add a gift to RSBC, you may be able to add a simple form, known as a codicil, to your existing will. Speak to your will writer or solicitor to make sure this is done correctly.
