How to leave a Legacy

Leave a gift in your Will

Arranging to leave a legacy in your Will is simple.

If you have already made a Will, the simplest way to leave a legacy to the Conservative Foundation is by means of a Codicil or by a Letter of Wishes. Alternatively, if you are preparing a new Will, there are four common types of legacy you can use to leave a gift to the Conservative Foundation. These include;

  • a residuary gift
  • a cash or pecuniary gift
  • a specific gift
  • a reversionary gift

The standard wording for any of the above methods can be made available to you by contacting us on Tel: 020 7984 8035/8037 or email us at and asking for more information.

Your solicitor will be able to advise you as to the most appropriate legacy to meet your personal requirements.

Keep us informed

Writing or amending a Will is a very private and delicate matter. If you would like to let us know about your intentions to include the Conservative Foundation in your Will we would be extremely grateful.
