We all want to be remembered for something. Have you ever thought about being remembered for helping homeless people? A gift in your will to Housing Justice is an excellent way to make sure that your concern for children and adults who have poor or no homes continues into the future.
It’s easy to remember Housing Justice in your will. There are two main ways – giving a percentage of what you have or leaving a set amount of money. Housing Justice is grateful for all legacies but it’s worth noting that while a set sum loses its value over time giving a percentage of your total estate does not.
To leave a legacy to Housing Justice, you should ask your solicitor to use the following wording. Remember to include Housing Justice’s registered charity number.
Giving a percentage of what you’ve got (legally known as a “Residuary Bequest”)
I give ……% of the residue of my estate to Housing Justice, 256 Bermondsey Street, London SE1 3UJ (Registered Charity Number 294666) for its general purposes
Giving a set amount of money (legally known as a “Specific Bequest”)
I give to Housing Justice, 256 Bermondsey Street, LONDON SE1 3UJ (Registered Charity Number 294666) the sum of £………….. for its general purposes
