Leave a legacy for Solace
A legacy from you will help Solace Women’s Aid to realise our vision of ending abuse.
After you’ve taken care of the people closest to you, a small gift in your will could make a huge difference to the women and children we support, for many years to come.
Types of legacy
There are several ways you can leave a gift in your will.
A residuary legacy is a gift of all, or part, of what is left after all other legacies, debts, tax and costs have been paid. Gifts of residue are especially welcomed because, unlike pecuniary legacies, they are not devalued over time by inflation.
A pecuniary legacy is a gift of a specified sum of money.
A specific legacy is a gift of a specified item such as a painting, a piece of jewellery or a vehicle.
We always recommend seeing a solicitor if you are thinking of writing or amending your will, but don’t forget to include the full name of the charity (Solace Women’s Aid) and our Charity Registration Number (1082450).
