Leave a Gift in Your Will

Support your family, support your local hospice.

75% of our care is provided by donations and gifts in Wills, enabling us to make every day the best day possible for people and families living with life-limiting illnesses in South Devon. No matter how large or small your gift, it will make a real and lasting difference to people’s lives.

Why do I need a Will?

  • To ensure your loved ones are supported and any family circumstances, such as births, marriages and divorces, are considered as you wish.
  • To give direction to your Executors so they know where to take your belongings.
  • To make your wishes for your funeral arrangements known.
  • To leave a gift to Rowcroft, or another charity of your choice.

What if I don’t have a Will?

If you die without a Will, the law determines who inherits your property, possessions and savings.  This means your wishes may not be met and family members, friends or chosen charities may not receive a gift as you had wished. It is important to write a Will if you would like to offer specific gifts to specific people.

Did you know:

  • You are able to update your Will as little or as often as you like by making a Codicil, so you can opt in or out of leaving a gift to Rowcroft at any time.
  • You can offer gifts to more than one charity in your Will. 17% of Wills in 2015 contained a gift to charity.

If after providing for your family you are considering leaving a gift to Rowcroft in your Will, please remember that we also have a commitment to you. Read more about our commitment in our legacy charter here.
