Leaving a gift in your Will is an important decision and we appreciate that you want to look after friends and family first. After you have provided for your loved ones we hope you will consider leaving a gift to Kidney Cancer UK. A gift in a Will is straight forward.
We recommend using a solicitor or professional will-writer to make sure your Will is legal and valid.
A share of your estate
After you have provided for your family and friends, you can leave a share, or the remainder, of your estate to us. This is called a‘residuary gift’.
Updating an existing Will
If you already have a Will, you can update it by adding some simple wording to your Will. This is called a codicil. It’s a good idea to review your Will when circumstances change to check that it still reflects your wishes.
This is when you leave an exact sum of money to us. It is known as a ‘pecuniary gift’.
A special gift
This is a gift of a particular asset or item.
A gift in trust
You can leave a gift for someone to use over a period of time. When the time has ended, the gift can be passed on to other recipients, such as a charity
