Leaving a Legacy

How will leaving a gift in your will to HOPE worldwide UK impact people?

At HOPE worldwide UK, our vision is of a world where everyone has the opportunity to fulfil their God-given potential.

We work to transition those recovering from substance addiction towards long-term health and meaningful training or employment. We support those facing homelessness with their search for suitable accommodation and help move them forward in life.

We also support international efforts to eradicate poverty, provide education for children, train young adults and more in Zambia, Nepal, India, Afghanistan, Cambodia, Bangladesh and Zimbabwe.

If you choose to leave behind a gift for us, we will strive to use your legacy to empower people to overcome poverty, homelessness and addiction through our compassionate service

Types of Legacy Gift

Percentage of Your Estate

Once specific gifts have been made to friends and family, you could make a legacy gift as a percentage of your remaining estate. This is also known as a ‘residuary gift’.

Cash Gifts

Alternatively, you could leave a specified sum of money. This is also known as a ‘pecuniary gift’.

Specific Gifts

A specific gift is a gift of an item, such as stocks and shares, a personal possession or land.

Gifts in a Trust

Finally, you might decide to leave a gift in a trust and name a charity as the beneficiary of the trust.

What is a will and why should you write one? 

Your will is a legal document that determines what will happen to your estate after you pass away. If you want to ensure that your estate goes to the people and causes you care about, it is important that you write a will.

Leaving a legacy to HOPE worldwide UK

By including a gift to HOPE worldwide UK in your will, you will leave a lasting legacy of hope which will impact the lives of people both here in the UK and across the world.

How to write your will
