Leaving a gift in your will is a way of ensuring that The Boys’ Brigade continues to make a real difference in the lives of children and young people for generations to come.

Under present legislation when more than 10% of a gross estate is left to charitable causes the balance of the estate is subject to a preferable rate of inheritance tax.

If you already have a will and wish to make a simple amendment, such as leaving a gift to The Boys’ Brigade, you can make a codicil . There is no limit to how many codicils you add, but a codicil is only suitable for straightforward alterations. The codicil form needs to be signed and witnessed in the same way as your will. The form must then be kept in a safe place with your will.

If you would like more information or to discuss with someone about leaving a legacy to The Boys’ Brigade please contact the Finance Team on 01442 231 681 or supporters@boys-brigade.org.uk
