Leave a gift in your will

Transform the lives of homeless people by leaving a gift in your will.

Legacies are a very important part of our funding and play a significant role in enabling us to continue to help some of the most vulnerable people in our society. Only 30% of our vital homelessness services are statutory funded, we rely on the generosity of our supporters for the remainder of our income.

How do I leave a gift in my will to The Passage?

There are three main ways of making a simple gift to The Passage

  1. a specific sum;
  2. proceeds of the sale of specific assets (property, jewellery, investments etc.); since The Passage has no facilty for realising such items it is best to stipulate that your executors sell the specific assets and give the proceeds to The Passage; and
  3. a percentage or fraction of the residual estate (what is left after providing for all expenses and legacies). This is a very valuable way of supporting The Passage after you have made provision for your loved ones, because the value of the gift is not affected by inflation.

As a registered charity, all gifts to The Passage are free from inheritance tax.
