How can I ensure my loved ones won’t miss out if I include a gift to charity in my will? We completely understand that your loved ones are your first priority. All we ask is that when you’ve taken care of them, you consider us and causes you care about. If you’re worried about not having enough of value to do this, you might like to consider leaving us a small percentage share of anything that’s left (a Residuary Legacy) rather than a cash gift. That way, if the value of your estate goes down so will your legacy gift.
