Many supporters choose to remember their favourite charity in their will once their family’s future has been safeguarded. Charitable legacies are exempt from Inheritance Tax, so by helping Glasgow Women's Aid, you could also substantially reduce the amount of tax payable on your estate.
Making a will and leaving a legacy is not about death and dying – it is about the hope you pass on to others and the satisfaction of sharing your good fortune with the people and causes close to your heart.
Glasgow Women's Aid is commited to a world where domestic abuse is not tolerated or ignored and where women and children can live in safety. By remembering Glasgow Women's Aid in your will our work will continue in the knowledge we can count on your support.
Making a will is the best and simplest way to safeguard everyone's future and ensure your assets go to the people and causes closest to your heart. If you die without a legal will, your estate will still be divided up - but by the courts, not you.
Having a will in place makes life easier for those left behind, and helps eliminate misunderstandings. If you have children, you can safeguard their future by providing for them financially and, where necessary, appointing a legal guardian. With your solicitor's help you might also be able to minimise the inheritance tax payable on your estate.
