Leave a Gift in Your Will

Support your family, support your local hospice.

Donations in Wills, also known as legacies or gifts, are a vital source of funds for Rowcroft. Once your loved ones have been provided for, it would be wonderful if you could leave a donation to Rowcroft Hospice.

A gift, large or small, will make a real difference to people’s lives.

It is straightforward and inexpensive to have a Will drafted by a qualified professional; Rowcroft, partner with a number of South Devon solicitors. You can also look out for our Make a Will Week, which takes place every May. For one week our participating South Devon solicitors waive their entire fee for making or updating your Will in return for a donation to Rowcroft.

Donation to Rowcroft

A Will isn’t solely about passing on your assets; it gives you an opportunity to make your future wishes known to family and friends. Simply collecting donations at a funeral can make a huge difference; helping our teams of health and social care professionals to support families living with life-limiting illnesses in South Devon to share precious time together.

How to remember Rowcroft in your Will

A Pecuniary Gift - A fixed gift of money e.g. £1,000.

A Specific Gift - This can be anything from clothing, furniture or a piece of jewellery.
