Leave a Gift in Your Will
A legacy gift in your Will to ARC will mean future generations can always turn to us for support.
Looking after the people and causes you care about
Helen Cody, ARC Ambassador
Having an up-to-date Will is so important – it means the things you leave behind go to the people and causes you care about, giving you peace of mind. It also helps your loved ones know what your wishes would have been, so they don’t have to make difficult decisions.
Making a Will is naturally on the minds of many, as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to disrupt the nation and raise concerns about the health and the well-being of ourselves and of our loved ones. As a result of the isolation and lockdowns, many people have time to reflect and are taking the opportunity to update or make their Will.
Why leave a gift
By leaving a gift to ARC in your Will, you’ll share the extraordinary feeling of knowing that your lasting memory will be one of hope and support to anyone affected by cancer.
Your legacy gift can make a real difference and helps people including children, teens, families and carers during a difficult period to come to terms with their illness and to enhance their coping skills and quality of life.
We are grateful to those who have chosen to support our work by leaving a gift in their Will. These very special gifts are crucial to making sure our vital services continue.
Choose the gift that's right for you
If you’re considering leaving a gift to ARC in your Will, thank you. Here are the different options for the type of gift you can leave in your Will:
- A share of your estate: A percentage share of your estate once all other gifts and expenses have been settled. This is the most valuable type of gift as it retains its value over time. This is called a 'residuary gift'.
- A fixed sum of money: This can be any amount you choose and is called a 'pecuniary gift'.
- A specific item: This can include items such as jewellery, stocks and shares or property and is called a ‘specific gift’.
