Two important ways you can support the work of our Fund are by leaving a ‘Legacy’ or a ‘Gift in Memory’.
Making a donation specifically in memory of a loved one who has died is known as a Gift in Memory. This type of gift does not need to be made in a Will and can be given at any time by contacting the Pilgrimage Office.
A legacy is a bequest to us in your Will. Legacies are very flexible way of giving and can take many forms, including a fixed sum of money, a specific possession which could be auctioned to raise funds for us, or a percentage of what remains of your estate after you have made provision in your Will for your family and friends. Legacies can also take the form of a trust, which allows you to leave something to a loved one for their lifetime with the provision that it will pass to the Pilgrimage after they have died.
If you are considering leaving us a legacy in your Will, please request an information pack from our Pilgrimage Office.
We recommend that you always use a solicitor or professional adviser to prepare your Will.
