Many people with a profound disability are marginalised in every area of society. They can be ignored, overlooked and excluded. But you can help change their life by leaving a gift to The Bevern Trust in your Will.
With your support, we will be able to reach out to more families in Sussex who have a child with profound disabilities. Make a Free Will online and help The Bevern Trust allow people with complex needs to live life in abundance – with the freedom and opportunity that many others take for granted.
First, work out what you’ve got. Start by sitting down with a cuppa and write down everything you own – including savings, possessions, property – and their approximate value. Then note down the names of relatives and friends – people you want to include in your will. Match up the two lists and you’re now ready to make a Free Will online.
The Bevern Trust have teamed up with Make a Will Online who we have met personally, to understand how easy, safe and cost effective it is to Make a *Free Will online in three easy steps.
What’s even more reassuring is that every Will is checked by an expert with £2m of professional liability insurance. For more questions and enquiries, visit the FAQ page at Make a Will Online.
By completing a free will using the links above you agree that your name, the date you made the will and the amount of any legacy left to The Bevern Trust will be shared with the charity. *The charity will also pay for the will (£29.50 or £39.50 for two wills). You can make a donation to cover this payment at the end of the process. You can make a will and leave a legacy without sharing this information by going to www.makeawillonline.co.uk and completing the will.
This service allows you to assign a legacy of any size to The Bevern Trust. You can either give a specific gift, normally a sum of money, or you can make the charity a residuary beneficiary. Some people choose to make the charity into a backup residuary beneficiary in the case that there are no living relatives to inherit an estate.
To help us with our campaign, details of your legacy will be shared with The Bevern Trust: your name, your contact details, the amount of the legacy and the date you made the will. We may contact you to thank you and to keep you updated with information about us.
If you do already have a will and want to leave a gift to The Bevern Trust, contact your solicitor and let them know your intentions. You can work with them either to (a) make a new will or (b) a shorter and less expensive “codicil”.
Please ensure that your solicitor uses our full name: The Bevern Trust, our charity number: 1103520, and our registered address: The Bevern Trust, The Willows Barcombe Lewes BN8 5FJ.
If you haven’t already made a will you can make one and leave a gift of a specific amount of money or a proportion of your estate to us and other charities. Once your family and friends are catered for, anything you can provide us will make a huge difference to our work.
Did you know that people who leave more than 10% of their estate to charity receive inheritance tax benefits?
If your estate is liable for inheritance tax (see here), we suggest you speak to your solicitor to discuss making a will and leaving a gift to us. If you don’t have a solicitor, go to http://solicitors.lawsociety.org.uk/to search for a local solicitor.
If you have complicated needs in your will – for example: dependent relatives/ friends, property overseas, trust income or ongoing legal issues – we suggest you speak to a solicitor.
Thank you for your support.
