Legacies are a lifeline for our parishes. Each year around 4,000 people leave a gift in their will to a Church of England parish. In total, parishes receive around £55 million in legacy gifts each year – gifts to finance mission projects, maintain beautiful church buildings and grow faithful communities.
This leaflet provides an introduction to legacies and will writing and the different ways a legacy can be left to your local parish church including wording for a generic will clause.
It can be distributed to church members as part of a light touch Giving Review or made available at the back of church for individuals to take away.
Maximum order quantity of 300 leaflets. If you require more than 300, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, letting us know your reason.
