Legacy Giving

Your Will Can Change Lives For Good

Having an up-to-date Will is vital in ensuring your assets are given over to your loved ones in a way you are happy with. It is, however, also a perfect opportunity to help a charity or cause important to you. A legacy gift to charity is free from inheritance tax and can reduce your overall inheritance tax rate from 40% to 36%.

“I would like to know that after I have gone my sponsored children would be funded for further education, if they want it”

Leaving a gift to the Nasio Trust in your Will can make a transformational difference to our charity, which aims to support vulnerable children and empower communities in western Kenya. A legacy gift could make a sizeable impact, bringing us closer to realising our vision by eliminating the problem of HIV orphans in western Kenya and ultimately breaking the cycle of poverty in the region.

Updating your will need not be complex and time consuming. Be inspired to contribute to our life saving projects.

What to Do…

If you are thinking about leaving a gift to The Nasio Trust in your Will, the best thing to do is see your solicitor. They will advise you on how to write, or amend, your Will and how to make a gift to charities like The Nasio Trust. There are a number of ways you might want to remember The Nasio Trust in your Will, but these are the main ones:

  • Pecuniary Legacy. This is when you leave a specific sum, such as £1,000, to a beneficiary. If you currently sponsor a child and would like to continue this sponsorship so that he or she can complete their primary and secondary education, you can leave a Pecuniary bequest of £6,000.
  • Residuary Legacy. This is what is left, once you have identified all those parties who are to receive specific sums. This usually takes the form of a percentage share of an estate, or an entire estate, that you would like to give to a good cause that is important to you. Did you know, by gifting 10% of your estate to charity your Inheritance tax rate will reduce from 40% to 36% on the entire estate.
  • Specific Legacy. A particular named item left as a gift in your Will, is known as a specific bequest, for example a piece of jewelry.
