Leaving A Gift In Your Will
Thinking about family and friends will always come first when making a Will, but any charitable gift you leave to the Foundation, whatever the size, will make a big difference to our local communities.
Giving through HIWCF in your will ensures that the money you give goes directly to the communities of Hampshire and the Isle of Wight. We can help you decide which is the right option for you and support you to achieve your legacy wishes.
Leaving a legacy gift to HIWCF in your Will offers you the flexibility to support a charitable cause or area that you find particularly inspiring, or that has special meaning for you. If you work with us when you are writing your Will, we can ensure that the wording of the gift in your Will enables the kind of philanthropy you most care about.
Setting Up An Endowment Fund
An endowment gift becomes a lasting memorial and will help to meet the needs of future generations. You can name your legacy Endowment Fund after your family or choose a name that is meaningful to you and your family. Importantly, an HIWCF legacy Endowment Fund can enable family and friends to be involved in the decision making process without the burden of legal or fiscal responsibilities.
HIWCF is able to manage legacies of all kinds:
Many charitable gifts from Wills are exempt from Inheritance Tax and this can help reduce the total amount of tax paid on your estate. We recommend consulting your legal advisor when making changes to a Will, to ensure that your wishes are fully implemented and that you are pursuing the most tax effective approach for your entire Estate.
