Gifts in Wills

At Wessex Cancer Trust, we understand that the people you elect to remember in your Will can be a very private affair. For many people, leaving a gift to a charity in their Will is a natural extension of the support they have shown during their lifetime.

What types of gift can you leave?

A cash gift

This is when you leave an exact sum of money to us. It’s known as a ‘pecuniary gift’.

A share of your estate

After you have provided for your loved ones, you can leave a share of what remains to charity. This is known as a ‘residuary gift’.

A gift in trust

You can leave a gift for someone to use over a period of time. When the time has ended, the gift can be passed on to other recipients, such as a charity.

A specific gift

This can be specific personal possessions, stocks and shares or works of art.

Your wishes regarding the use of any gift are very important to us. Our development team can speak to you in confidence about areas of our work you might like to support. Any discussion is in no way compulsory.

How to leave a gift

If the time is ever right for you to remember a charity in your Will, please consider Wessex Cancer Trust. Every gift – however large or small – makes a huge difference. Even 1% (so those closest to you inherit 99%) or a modest sum of money will leave a lasting legacy.

We would advise all donors to obtain advice from a solicitor prior to making a legacy pledge or gift. You will need the following information in order to make a gift to Wessex Cancer Trust in your Will:
