BWB are proud to support Remember A Charity, a consortium of charities working to encourage more people to leave charitable gifts in their will. Many charities depend on legacies, which currently raise almost £2 billion a year. However, while 74% of the UK population donate to charities during their lifetimes, only about 7% currently leave a charitable legacy in their Will.
For the third year running, BWB is running a free seminar for solicitors and professional will-writers on best practice for leaving a charitable gift in a will, as part of Remember A Charity Week which runs from 17 to 23 September.
This year, BWB are also opening up the seminar to charities who wish to attend. This free session will be particularly useful for anyone at your charity who is new to legacy administration or legacy fundraising or other members of the team who would like a good introduction to charitable legacies.
The seminar will include:
Lunch and networking opportunities;
An introduction to Remember A Charity and the importance of legacies;
An overview of the types of legacies that can be left to charities in a will, from basic charity legacies to more advanced gifts and gifts for specific purposes; and
Inheritance tax update on charity legacies, including the new IHT incentive when leaving 10% of an estate to charity which came into force on 6th April 2012.
If you or someone in your charity would like to attend this seminar please contact Susanne Levy at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your place.
Places are limited so please book early to avoid disappointment.
