Because you can make all the difference…
Leaving a gift in your Will to the Hospice in the Weald is a profound way to have an impact for generations to come. Whether it’s having a room with a view, bringing the outdoors in or planting seeds that will flower for years to come, hospice care is special.
Being together and creating special memories that matter, as a whole family is so important. Your Gift allows us to provide a place that allows people to be who they are.
Your Gift means counselling for a recently bereaved daughter. It means physiotherapy for a man who wants to get back on the golf course. It means fun days out and happy memories for a family with a child with a complex and life-limiting condition.
Your Gift means a husband and wife spending their final hours together, in peace. It means a dad staying at home for family Christmases and birthdays. It means someone making new friends in our Hospice choir, or helping the next patient in our End of Life Matters group.
When you leave a Gift in your Will to Hospice in the Weald, you give us the time and ability to remember the details that make days better, to go the extra mile when every moment matters. To make all the difference for our community.
Writing a will gives you the control and peace of mind that when you are gone your estate will be given to the correct people. Without a will, everything you own will be divided up according to the law which might be against your wishes. Not only does a will make sure your money, property or possessions go where you want them to, it makes the whole process easier for your friends and family.
If you choose to include Hospice in the Weald in your will, you will need the following information:
It’s easy to add Hospice in the Weald to your will, you can add a legal document to it known as a Codicil Form and update it at any time.
Yes, there are. Charities are exempt from inheritance tax and the value of your estate will be calculated after your charitable donations.
As well as the gift itself being tax-free, charitable gifts can also reduce the amount of inheritance tax that the rest of your estate will pay. If you give at least 10% of your taxable estate to charity, the inheritance tax rate for the rest of your estate drops from 40% to 36%.
We appreciate you would prefer to know exactly how your gift is being used but it would be useful for us if you don’t specify how we use your gift. This is so it can be used in the place most needed at the time. We promise to you that we will always use your gift responsibly and effectively.
Yes of course you can. A will is your own personal document. You can change it at any time, and you don’t need to tell us.
