An opportunity to make a lasting impact on the world
Leaving a gift to CAMFED in your will
As well as making sure that your loved ones are provided for, writing your will can also be an opportunity to make a lasting impact on the world. Legacy gifts left to CAMFED impact whole communities in Sub-Saharan Africa for generations to come.
Leaving a gift to CAMFED in your will activates a network of support which results in marginalized young women receiving the quality education they deserve. Although it can be a daunting process, creating an up-to-date will ensures that your family, and the causes you care about, are provided for as you intend.
We recommend consulting a solicitor to make sure that all the legal formalities are correctly followed and that your will is valid. For more information and to find a solicitor in your area, you can call the Law Society on 020 7320 5650 or visit www.lawsociety.org.uk.
There are three different types of gifts you can leave in your will:
- A residuary legacy is a share of the balance of your estate once all other payments have been made.
- A pecuniary legacy is a fixed amount of money.
- A specific legacy is a gift of a specific item, such as personal possessions, land, buildings or shares.
