If you are kind enough to be considering leaving us a gift in your Will, we'd like to say a huge thank you. Your legacy really will make a difference. Giving in this special way provides long-term security and stability, allowing us to plan bright futures for tomorrow's children and young people with complex disabilities.
There are three types of gift you can leave in your Will:
A share of your estate – This is a percentage of your estate after all other gifts and expenses have been paid. These gifts are very important to us as they usually maintain their value or increase over time. This also means you're less likely to need to amend it in the future.
A specific sum – This is a gift of a set amount of money.
A specific item – This could be something valuable such as an antique, painting, property or shares that we would sell.
If you already have a Will, and wish to add a gift to Chailey Heritage Foundation, you can complete a codicil form and store it with your will. A codicil is read alongside your Will and allows you to make changes to your Will, without having to rewrite it.
You will need the following information:
Charity name: Chailey Heritage Foundation
Registered Charity No. 1075837
Registered Address: Haywards Heath Road, Nth Chailey, East Sussex BN8 4EF
