Your legacy is the future of economic literacy
By pledging a gift in your Will, you will help to secure a future for economic literacy for all, and leave a lasting legacy for future generations.
What is a Legacy Gift?
A legacy gift is a gift that someone leaves to a charity in their Will.
The most common types of legacy gifts left in Wills are:
- Residuary gift: the residue (or a proportion of the residue) of an estate after all other gifts, debts and expenses have been paid.
- Pecuniary gift: This is a fixed sum. This type of gift will, over time, devalue with inflation. If you want to futureproof your legacy you can ask your solicitor about index-linking your gift so its value keeps pace with inflation.
- Specific gift: a particular asset, for example an investment or property.
