Gifts in Wills
Gifts left in Wills go a long way to fund the practical and emotional support we provide to amputees coping in some of the most challenging parts of the world.
These special gifts are vital to ensuring we can continue to increase access to prosthetics and to change attitudes, end injustices and create a fairer society for amputees.
Including Legs4Africa in your Will
To give a gift to Legs4Africa in your Will, your Will writer will need our address and charity registration number:
Backfields House, Upper York Street, Bristol, United Kingdom, BS2 8QJ
Charity registration number: 1158697
Ways to include Legs4Africa in your Will
There are lots of ways you can leave a gift to us in your Will, such as:
A residuary gift. After giving what you want to friends and family, you can leave what’s left (or a percentage) to Legs4Africa.
A cash gift. You can leave a fixed amount of money to Legs4Africa. Because of inflation, the value of a fixed cash gift will decrease over time, so you may want to review cash gifts from time to time.
A gift in kind. You can leave possessions to us, like property, shares, jewellery or furniture.
In a trust. You can set aside a sum in your Will which is left in a trust fund and given to Legs4Africa when the term of the trust fund ends. You can also do this in the deed of any trust you make in your lifetime.
Amending an existing Will
If you already have a Will and would like to add a gift to Legs4Africa, you may be able to add a simple form, known as a codicil, to your existing Will. Speak to your Will writer or solicitor to make sure this is done correctly.
By leaving a gift in your Will, you will be helping us achieve a society where amputees have the same opportunities and treated with equality and fairness.
