Support Us > Leave a Lasting Legacy
As a REME Officer who saw service at home and overseas during the Second World War, I feel a debt of gratitude to those whose service left them disabled and now in need of significant help.’
Sir Denis Rooke
Making a Will is one of the most important decisions you can make. Providing for your loved ones is a key consideration but, having done so, would you consider supporting Care for Veterans by leaving a gift in your Will? 32% of donations to Care for Veterans come from legacy giving, making it a vital source of funding for our work.
For further guidance on leaving a gift to Care for Veterans, you can contact Elizabeth Baxter on 01903 218444 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
If you would like to add Care for Veterans to an existing Will, you can use a Codicil. Adding a Codicil to your Will means there is no need to change the terms of your current Will. It simply adds a new instruction. However, we still recommend that you get this checked by a solicitor. Contact us if you’d like more information, or talk to your solicitor to add a Codicil to your Will.
There are several ways of leaving a legacy, but incorporating a bequest into your Will need not be complicated. Please click here for our FAQs on making a legacy.
Every year, we team up with professional will writers who will write your will in return for a donation to Care for Veterans. Some people also use our scheme to remember us in their wills.
Our next Make a Will Month will take place in June 2019.
To find out more and to register your interest in our Make a Will Month, please contact our Legacies Officer on 01903 218444 or email email@example.com
As Care for Veterans is a relatively small charity, leaving a gift can make a significant difference. Michael Holliday had prostate cancer and lived at Care for Veterans (then The Queen Alexandra Hospital Home) for three months for palliative care. His wishes were to leave a legacy to Care for Veterans in gratitude for the care he received. Thanks to Michael’s generous legacy, we have been able to purchase 15 fully profiled beds needed to ensure that our disabled and elderly residents receive the highest care and comfort possible.
