Remember a Charity in Your Will

will is important

Why leave a gift in your Will?

Many people do not realise that gifts are the foundation of charitiesand for those in the UK, legacies are the single biggest source of donations.

MDVS targets its charitable work at the people who need our help the most, such as women, children and young people, older people.

Every year we support a great number of people, helping them to lead safer, more confident lives. However, we know that there are still huge numbers of people who need our help but whom our current resources do not enable us to reach.

By including a bequest to the MDVS in your Will, you will help to ensure that we continue to grow and expand until everyone who needs it has access to our services and guidance. Enabling more people to live life to the full in safety.

Why are gifts so important to charities

It’s a common myth that only the rich and famous leave money to charity when they die. This couldn’t be any further from the truth. The reality is without the gifts left in Wills by people like you, many of the charities we know and support today wouldn’t even exist.
Charitable legacies are the foundation for many good causes in the UK and are vital in continuing their work.

Thankfully, 74% of the UK population support charities and when asked, 35% of people say they would happily leave a gift in their Will once family and friends had been provided for.

The problem is only 7% actually do.

That’s why, if we all leave some money in our Wills for charity as well as our family, we can make a huge difference. In fact, just a 4% change in behaviour would generate an addition £1 billion for good causes in the UK every year.

Therefore, you do not have to be rich and famous to make a contribution that can make a difference. We can all do something amazing for the world just by remembering our favourite charity when writing a Will.
