Make a lasting impact – leave Caritas Salford a gift in your will

Writing your will can provide an opportunity to reflect on the life you have led and the values that are important to you.  For many, it offers a chance to consider how you’d like to be remembered and the positive impact you want to leave on the world.  As an independent charity, we rely entirely upon volunteers, donations and gifts in wills. We could not continue our work without people like you.

What types of gift can I leave?

Gifts can come in all shapes and sizes. We are grateful for every single gift we receive. Below is a quick guide to understanding the jargon of the different types of gifts you can include in your will. If you aren’t sure which is best for you, a solicitor will be happy to help you.

  • Residuary – once you’ve taken care of your loved ones, you can leave a share of, or the remainder of your estate to Caritas Diocese of Salford.
  • Pecuniary – you can choose to leave a specific amount of money in your will.
  • A specific gift – you can choose to leave us a specific item, such as jewellery or even a house when making a will.
Do I need to let you know if I’ve left Caritas Salford a gift in my will?

You don’t have to tell us if you’ve left a gift to the vulnerable and marginalised in your will, but we are always happy to hear from our supporters! It is also very helpful for us to know because it means we can better support you with your intentions and plan our services more efficiently for the future. We can keep you informed of the projects we are delivering; many of our supporters like to hear the latest developments. Any information you share with us is completely confidential and is in no way, legally binding.

If you would like to let us know that you have left a gift in your will and would like to be occasionally up-dated about our work, please email legacy@caritassalford.org.uk

A quiet but vital way to provide long lasting support

Each year, a small number of people, who share our values, help the work of Caritas live on in this quiet – but extremely important – way. Our supporters make a difference to those in need and help to make all our work possible.

Gifts in wills help Caritas Salford to adapt quickly to areas of need and make long-term commitments to communities to help them overcome poverty and injustice.

For more information about what the impact Caritas Salford makes to people’s lives and how your gift will change lives, email legacy@caritassalford.org.uk

We understand that family and friends come first, but we hope that you will consider including a gift that can have a lasting impact for the future.
