Leave a gift in your Will

Leave a gift in your Will

Making a Will allows your loved ones to be cared for. By leaving a gift to Place2Be in your Will, you can help make sure that no child or young people faces a mental health problem alone.

Having a Will ensures that your specific wishes will be carried out exactly as you would like. It can help to relieve some of the distress of those close to you at a difficult time.

Why should I leave a gift in my Will to Place2Be?

Our vision is for all children and young people to have the support they need to build lifelong coping skills and thrive.

A single, thoughtful gift – made once family and friends have been fully considered – can help shape a future where no child goes without the mental health support they need.

We've got a helpful guide including information about the impact your gift can have on children and young people.

I am passionate about mental health and the need to reach as many vulnerable children as possible. Legacy fundraising is a fantastic way to make the biggest impact and leave a lasting legacy that reaches far into the future - and that is why I have left a gift in my will. Mr Russell, legacy pledger

What type of gift can I leave?

There are different types of gifts you can leave in your Will. Each gift plays a crucial role in helping to improve children and young people’s mental health. The two most common are:

  • a share of your estate, or ‘residuary’ gift – after your loved ones have been looked after and your taxes have been settled, you may wish to leave a share or the full remainder (the residue) of your estate to Place2Be. This way, you will ensure your loved ones are provided for as well as facilitate the important work we do to help children and young people
  • a cash or ‘pecuniary’ gift – this is a single, exact cash gift left from your estate.
