Gotelee signs up to Remember a Charity in your Will Week

Gotelee has joined forces with more than 1,000 other professional advisors and around 180 charities to raise the profile of charitable giving in wills.

We are proud supporters of Remember a Charity in your Will Week, which encourages people to consider leaving a charitable gift once they’ve looked after their family and friends.

The week, which runs until Sunday, is led by Remember A Charity, which aims to do what no single charity can do alone – make gifts in wills the social norm.

Research shows that 35% of people wanted to leave money to a charity in their will, but only 7.3% do. This week will take steps towards helping those who have the intention of leaving a charitable gift in their Will, but aren’t quite sure how.

This year, the theme is “having your say” on the world you’d like to pass on, because that’s exactly what a legacy gift can help you do. It’s your opportunity to leave behind a gift that can make a positive impact on the lives of others and the world around us.

Remember a Charity in your Will Week also aims to raise awareness around the tax efficient ways you can give to good causes, including Gift Aid, which allows charities to reclaim the basic rate of tax you pay as a UK taxpayer.

Around 40% of people die without having made a will. If even a small percentage of those who don’t have a will chose to gift to a charity, it could make a huge difference.

How can Gotelee help?

Making a will is a crucial part of life planning. Without one, your final wishes may go unheard and your loved ones will face unnecessary added stress at an already difficult time.

A will is especially important if you own property or other valuable assets, and even more so if you have children.

Gotelee’s specialist team of lawyers can meet you at one of our offices, Ipswich, Hadleigh, Felixstowe, Woodbridge or Melton and can guide you through the process of making a Will.

If you would like, we can also help you ensure that any charities close to your heart receive a gift from you after your death.
