Leave a Gift in your Will

Leave a Gift in your Will

How making a gift in your will to GLO can make a massive difference...

What will your legacy be when you pass on from this life?

By leaving a gift in your will to Great Lakes Outreach you will be leaving hope for generations to come. Your gift will go on saving lives and transforming communities as an enduring work of grace in the lives of those it touches. Whether you choose to gift a percentage of your estate or a fixed amount, you can rest assured that your donation will be helping GLO deliver its programmes, bringing hope for years to come. 

Thank you.

Tax Savings

A gift in your will can sometimes reduce the amount of tax payable out of your estate, in the UK. The rate of inheritance tax is reduced from 40% to 36% if you leave at least 10% of your estate to charity. 

How to make or change a will

To ensure your intentions are fully carried out, it is advisable to seek the advice of a solicitor or other qualified professional when making a will.

Give your professional Will writer our name: Great Lakes Outreach and our registered charity number: 1097267 (UK) or, for supporters in the USA, our registered 501(c)(3) number: EIN 61-154-2335.

Your advisor will be able to share with you different types of legacies you can make, whether for specific items or amounts or for a percentage of your assets. If you would like to make a gift for a specific amount in your will to go to GLO, for example, £50,000, you can ask for this to be index-linked.  

It’s wise to write a will so that your family and dependants are cared for and your wishes carried out. Many of us put off making a will and die intestate. Sadly, this means that our estate usually passes to the State and our resources do not go to those we love and care about, just when they are also dealing with bereavement. 

If you’d like more details, or to discuss please get in touch.
