Legacy Giving

Why should I leave a gift in my will?

Wales YFC is reliant on charitable donations to continue our work. Leaving a gift in your will ensures that you can help us continue to support the next generation of rural young people, even after you’ve passed on.

If you already have a will and you want to include a gift to Wales YFC, there may not be any need to rewrite it. You can ask a qualified professional such as a solicitor to add an amendment (called a codicil). If the change is more significant or complex you should make a new will.

There are three main types of gift you can make. You can leave a specific sum of money or an item such as jewellery or a piece of art. Alternatively, you can leave a share in, or all, what’s left of the value of your estate after family and friends have been taken care of.

The advantage of leaving a share (also known as residuary gift) is that it remains the same over time, and you won’t need to change your will to keep up with inflation. It’s also the most valuable kind of gift to Wales YFC

Whatever the value of your gift, it will go a long way to helping Wales YFC continue to provide opportunities to future generations.
