When you leave a gift in your Will to NHS Charities Together, you’re saying thank you in a way that will carry on making a difference long after you’re gone.

Why Leave a Gift in your Will?

Your Will may be one of the most important documents you ever write. It’s a way to make sure that the right people get whatever you’ve decided to leave them. And, once family and friends have been looked after, it’s a wonderful way to support a charity that’s close to your heart. A charity such as NHS Charities Together.

What Kind of gift can you leave?

There are three main types of gifts you can leave in your Will.


A residuary gift is made up of whatever’s left after you’ve taken care of your family and friends. It’s up to you whether you give the whole of the residue or just a part of it.


A pecuniary gift is a fixed amount of money which you set aside. This is paid out before the residue of your estate is calculated.


A specific gift is a particular valuable item, such as property, shares or jewellery.

If you already have a Will, you can add an extra gift by using a codicil. This is an extra document you keep with your Will that lists any additional gifts or changes. It’s useful to have the help of a solicitor to write a codicil.
