Leave a legacy What you leave behind when you go is your legacy. Donating a gift to a charity in your will is an amazing way to leave a lasting legacy that can go on to help many more people in their life. Ways to Leave a Legacy to Our Charity Friends and family always come first but giving to Doncaster Alcohol Services in your will is one way you can leave a legacy that helps future generations. There are a number of types of gifts that you can leave to us in your will, which include: A share of your estate. Known as a “residuary legacy”, this is when you leave a portion of what you own to us, after your family and friends have received what you want to give them. It might be as small as 1% or as large as 100%, or anywhere in between. A fixed sum of money. Called a “pecuniary legacy”, this is a cash gift. Inflation can reduce its value over the years, so it’s worth reviewing these gifts occasionally. A specific gift. This is a particular named item, for example a piece of jewellery or other property. A gift in trust. This is a “reversionary legacy” which is when you leave assets to your loved one for the duration of their life. When they die, your Will could be written so that a legacy could be left to us at that time. We are a registered charity so giving to us in your will is a cost-effective way to donate because the gift is exempt from inheritance tax.
