How you can leave a legacy to Care for the Family

A legacy is any type of gift left to a person or organisation in a will. If you choose to leave a legacy to Care for the Family it’s relatively simple to arrange.

Leave a gift in your will image

If you haven’t had your will written yet, all you have to do is inform your solicitor of your wishes when they draw up the will. If you’ve already made your will and you want to add to it, you can make an amendment (a Codicil) as long as your changes aren’t too extensive.

When you visit your solicitor, you will need to give them the following information:

  • Care for the Family’s registered charity number: 1066905
  • Care for the Family’s address: Garth House, Leon Avenue, Cardiff CF15 7RG

You may also like to consider what kind of legacy you want to leave:

  • A percentage share of what you have (e.g. you might choose to give 10% to charity).
  • The remainder of your estate after debts and gifts to others have been paid (known as a Residuary Legacy) These gifts are unaffected by inflation, making your gift go further.
  • A fixed sum of money (known as a Pecuniary Legacy) – this kind of gift may well be worth less in years to come, due to inflation.
  • A gift, such as a painting or item of jewellery (known as a Specific Legacy).

Your solicitor will then be able to help you include the legacy as part of your will.
