Leaving Caring Matters Now a gift in your will is one of the most valuable and lasting ways you can support us. It costs nothing during your lifetime but will have a powerful impact for years to come.
There are a number of different ways you can remember Caring Matters Now in your will, depending on your circumstances. It doesn’t have to be a large amount, because every penny makes a difference.
You can leave a share of your assets
A good way to help is to leave a percentage of what is left of your estate or assets, after other gifts (and debts) have been paid. This is known as a ‘residuary bequest’. If you have already made a will, but want to add a residuary gift to Caring Matters Now, your solicitor can advise you on how you can do this without affecting the specific gifts you leave your family and friends. Also, inflation will not erode the value of residuary gifts over the years.
You can leave a fixed sum of money
You may wish to leave us a stated sum of money. This kind of gift is known as a pecuniary bequest. Alternatively, if you are concerned that inflation may erode your gift over the years, then it is also possible to leave an index linked pecuniary gift in your will.
You can leave a specific item of value
You may wish to leave us a particular item (known as a specific bequest), which can be sold to support our work. It could be property or an item of value such as an antique or a piece of jewellery. Many people ask us to arrange the clearance of their house after they have passed away.
To leave a gift to Caring Matters Now in your will, you will need to include the charity’s registered address (Caring Matters Now, Bridge Chapel Centre, Heath Road, Liverpool, L19 4XR) and registered charity number – 1192670.
