Firstly decide how much you want to leave to the Gatehouse, and how much to other charities and beneficiaries. For example, leaving as little as 1% to the Gatehouse would allow you to leave 99% to those close to you. Even if you raised that to 5% then other beneficiaries would still receive 95%.
Secondly you need to talk to a Solicitor, either to add a Gift to a Will that you already have in place, or to draw up a Will if you haven’t already written one.
If you don’t already have a solicitor and need to find one in your area then one way is to use Find a Solicitor function on the Law Society website. Simply select ‘wills, trusts and probate’ under ‘your legal issue’, add your location and search to produce a list of nearby Solicitors.
When you discuss this with your Solicitor they will need to know how much you want to leave, and the following two items of information:
- Our full charity name, which is Homeless People & the Oxford Churches (Gatehouse)
- Our registered charity number 1002741
Thank you for your support, and for considering the possibility of leaving a Gift in your Will, which could make a real difference to many of our guests’ lives in the years to come.
