Gift in wills

Did you know that gifts left to Caritas Salford in Wills are incredibly important, and help us to continue providing our services to support local people at a time they need us most?

While many of us don’t want to think about it, or put it off for another day, making a Will and letting those closest to you know your wishes is vital – it is also usually a really straightforward process that doesn’t take much time to do, and is the only charitable gift that costs you nothing at all today.

When making a gift in their Will to charities like ours, many people believe that the amount left has to be significant to have an impact.

We know that’s not the case. In fact, just 1% left to a charity like Caritas Salford after your loved ones have been provided for, can make a huge difference to our work – and most importantly a huge difference to the lives of people in the communities we support across the diocese.

Will you please remember a charity in your Will this year?

To make a gift in your Will, all you need is our charity name – Caritas Diocese of Salford – and our registered charity number – 1125808. Your solicitor should be able to do the rest, and it usually only takes a few minutes.

There are lots of reasons to write a Will, often prompted by an event like the loss of a loved one, the birth of a child, marriage, purchasing property, or wanting to ensure those closest to you inherit and know your wishes.

When the time is right for you, please do consider remembering Caritas Salford too. Your kindness would make a huge, huge difference. Thank you.

If you need any support, have decided to leave a gift in your Will to our charity, or have any queries at all, please do get in touch. We’d love to hear from you, and to keep you updated about what we’re achieving currently, and our plans for the future.
