Leave a Legacy

Leave a gift to future generations in your will and you will help to protect the interests of generations to come. We promise that your legacy will be spent wisely.

 

There are two main types of gift that you can leave to IF in your will:

  • A specific sum of money or an item such as artwork, or jewellery
  • A share in your estate after all other bills have been paid and all other legacies have been distributed

 

Leaving a gift is simple:

You just need to use a “codicil” in an existing will. This means simply adding a new instruction and there is no need to change the terms of your current will if the change you wish to make is simple and small. If you are making more complex changes you are advised to seek advice from a solicitor or professional adviser.

 

Wording to use for a codicil:

For a residuary gift:

I give the residue of my estate to the Intergenerational Foundation (IF), 19 Half Moon Lane, London SE24 9JU (registered charity no: 1142 230) for its general charitable purposes. I further direct that the receipt of the trustees or other proper officer of the said charity for the time being shall be a full and sufficient discharge for the said gift.

For a pecuniary/specific bequest:

I give the sum of £x (or the item specified) to the Intergenerational Foundation (IF), 19 Half Moon Lane, London, SE24 9JU (registered charity 1142 230) for its general charitable purposes. I further direct that the receipt of the trustees or other proper officer of the said charity for the time being shall be a full and sufficient discharge of the said gift.
