Gift in Will FAQs

If you decide you want to leave Leukaemia CARE a Gift in your Will, you will naturally have some questions. Here are a few answers to things that may be on your mind.


Q. What information do I need to include when I’m leaving a gift in my Will to Leukaemia CARE?

A. The most important bits of information to include are our name, address and registered charity number. You would need to say:

“I leave Leukaemia CARE (Registered Charity Number 259483 or SC039207, Leukaemia CARE, One Birch Court, Blackpole East, Worcester, WR3 8SG)…” Followed by the details of your personal gift.


Q. Is leaving a Gift in my Will right for me if I don’t have much to give?

A. At Leukaemia CARE we receive no Government funding and rely solely on donations and the commitment of our volunteers and fundraisers to raise money for us. This is why every single gift we receive is greatly apreciated and can make a big difference to those we support. Just £300 could help to fund 10 of our support groups; a place for patients and relatives to go where they can meet others. You can also choose to donate a specific item, such as an antique or piece of artwork.


Q. Can I choose what my gift is spent on?

A. Yes you can. Whilst we welcome gifts that can be used for general funds, we are also very happy to accept gifts for a particular use. That means you can choose precisely where and what your money is spent on.


Q. Is it better to give to you now, rather then when I die?

A. We are grateful for all gifts, no matter when they are received. Some people choose to help us throughout their lifetime as well as a Gift in their Will. Some people are unable to support us as much as they wish in their lifetime but leave us a share of their assets to support us in the future.


Q. Should I tell you that you are in my Will?

A. Your Will is a private document and it is completely up to you whether you wish to share the contents of it with anyone, including us. However, if you choose to tell us, it means we are able to thank you for your generosity.
