LEAVE A LEGACY IN YOUR WILL

Legacies are special gifts from one generation to another. By remembering the work of Edith’s Hope in your will, you are providing orphaned children with crucial support to give them hope for their future.
Only 1 in 3 people in the UK make a will. This means that loved ones are often left with difficult decisions to make at an emotional time. If you die without making a will, this could result in your estate not going where you would have wished. 
Often people are comforted by knowing that when they die their money is helping to give others the chance to live a long and healthy life.
 
What about Inheritance Tax?
The money and assets left in your estate may be subject to Inheritance Tax (currently 40%) on the value of the estate which is over the tax threshold. You are allowed to make small gifts to family and friends (currently £250 each) which are tax free. In addition, all gifts to charities are taken off the value of your estate before inheritance tax is calculated, and may be given to as many charities as you choose. Giving legacies in this way is a very tax efficient way to give. 
 
How will Edith’s Hope use my legacy gift?
Your legacy to Edith’s Hope is a gift to empower orphaned children and improve their lives. By browsing our website and social media platforms you can see the various projects and we fund in Uganda. 
A general donation will be put towards the neediest project that we are working on when the donation comes through.
