Remembering us in your Will
As a charity, Rowcroft relies on the generosity of our supporters. Without people like you, we couldn’t offer vital services to more than 2,000 patients and their families every year. One way you can help is by remembering us in your Will.
Leaving a lasting legacy
Once your loved ones have been provided for, it would be wonderful if you would consider leaving a gift in your Will to Rowcroft Hospice.
Having a Will drafted by a qualified professional doesn’t have to be expensive, or complicated. We‘ve partnered with a number of South Devon solicitors to make the process as straightforward and inexpensive as possible. In fact, every May during Make a Will Week, many solicitors will waive their entire fee for making or updating your Will, in return for a donation to Rowcroft.
How to remember Rowcroft in your Will
A Residuary Gift – Once your family has been cared for and expenses covered, you might consider leaving part of your estate to Rowcroft, e.g. 1% of the residue of your estate.
A Pecuniary Gift – You could choose to leave us a fixed gift of money, e.g. £1,000.
A Specific Gift – This can be anything from clothing, to furniture or a piece of jewellery. We could then sell your gift to raise funds.
Charitable gifts in Wills are not subject to inheritance tax, so you can be assured that the full amount of any gift you make to Rowcroft Hospice would be used to support our work.
A Will isn’t solely about passing on your assets; it also gives you an opportunity to make your wishes known to your family and friends. Simply asking for donations to be collected at your funeral can raise much needed funds – helping families living with a life-limiting illness to share precious time together.
If after providing for your loved ones, you are considering leaving a gift to Rowcroft in your Will, please remember that we also have a commitment to you. You can read more about our commitment in our legacy promise.
