Leaving a legacy of love
After you have looked after your family you may wish to leave a lasting legacy to a charity
Writing a will can seem a daunting prospect, but it doesn’t have to be. It can be very precious time when we remember the people closest to us and the things we cared most about. For many of us this means ensuring our family are financially provided for and receive the things that were precious to us, such as jewellery and mementos.
It can also mean remembering the charities and causes that mean so much to us and that we want to continue to support.
“I remember, some years ago, sitting down with my wife Linda and dividing our estate between the people we love and the charities we support. When we added up our potential estate, especially the sale of our home, it was genuinely amazing to think of all the good we could do. We realised that even a small percentage left to charity could mean significant gifts to small charities. It is very comforting to know we will be leaving as legacy of love ill make a huge difference, and for that we are so grateful.”
Mike Griffin, Chief Executive, Tools with a Mission
It is amazing what we can achieved with even a small gift. Please do consider remembering Tools with a Mission in your will. It can be a set amount or a percentage and a solicitor can advise you on what is best for you.
Tools with a Mission is a very small charity which relies heavily on the generous donations of our supporters and increasingly on their gifts through legacies. Legacy income provides us with significant gifts to fund bigger purchases such as the vans we need to collect goods, or the equipment we need to refurbish tools. Day to day costs are generally met through donations but larger items than ensure the future of the mission rely heavily on legacies.
Please do consider remembering us in your will. If you would like to discuss this with us please do contact us, our CEO, Mike Griffin. He is always happy to help with questions and talk through any specific requirements.
