Why leave a legacy?

A legacy is a way of showing your love and concern for those close to you (individuals and causes that you support) by making a provision for them when you are gone. It is important to realise that a legal will is the only way you can ensure your dependants or others will benefit from your estate.

Making a will is an opportunity to help others and express your Christian commitment. By including a legacy to FRRME, whose work is important to you, you can continue to make a difference to people’s lives even after your death. By leaving a legacy to FRRME, you will be leaving a precious gift, enabling FRRME to continue to spread the peace of the Lord Jesus Christ, shining light in the darkness, building and strengthening the Kingdom of God.

 

How to leave a legacy to FRRME

Leaving a legacy to FRRME is very straightforward. The three main ways in which you can leave a gift to FRRME are explained below, together with some suggested wording that you might like to use.

Residuary LegacyPecuniary LegacySpecific Legacy

This is when you leave to FRRME all or some of what remains of your estate after all other bequests and expenses have been deducted. This type of gift ensures that those you care for are provided for, and has the additional benefit of keeping pace with inflation.

Suggested wording: “I give all (or a __% share) of the residue of my estate, after payment of my debts, funeral expenses and inheritance tax liability, to the Foundation for Relief and Reconciliation in the Middle East, PO Box 229, Petersfield, GU32 9DL (registered UK charity number 1133576) for its general charitable purposes. I direct that the receipt of a duly authorised officer shall be a good discharge to my executors.”

This is when you leave a gift of a specified amount of money to FRRME, for instance £5,000. This type of gift may be devalued by inflation.

Suggested wording: “I give to the Foundation for Relief and Reconciliation in the Middle East, PO Box 229, Petersfield, GU32 9DL (registered UK charity number 1133576) the sum of [amount in figures and words] for its general charitable purposes, and I direct that the receipt of a duly authorised officer shall be a good discharge to my executors.”

This is when you leave a gift of a specific item of property to FRRME. This item must be clearly identified within your will and your solicitor will be able to advise you on the appropriate wording.

Suggested wording: “I give to the Foundation for Relief and Reconciliation in the Middle East, PO Box 229, Petersfield, GU32 9DL (registered UK charity number 1133576) [description of property] for its general charitable purposes, and I direct that the receipt of a duly authorised officer shall be a good discharge to my executors.”
