Types of gift
There are three main types of gift you can leave to a charity: a fixed sum gift, a share of your estate, or a specific item.
Our gifts in wills team is here to assist with any questions you may have, and while we can’t provide advice, can send you through our gifts in wills enquiry pack and discuss the work of the Trust with you. Our team can be reached on 0203 795 2132 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Before visiting your solicitor, make a list of what you want to leave behind and the approximate value. The next step is to decide whom you want to benefit from your possessions. It's natural to think of your family and friends first, and we hope that you may consider us in what is left over.
Wills aren't only about passing on your possessions. You may wish to nominate guardians for dependents under the age of 18. You can also include your wishes for specific funeral arrangements, and whether you would prefer donations to charity instead of flowers.
Our simple will-planning guide will take you through the steps. You will need to give your solicitor our charity registration number. The information you need is:
Cystic Fibrosis Trust
London EC3N 1RE
Registered charity number: 1079049 (England and Wales) and SC040196 (Scotland)
