Gifts in wills


Making Your Life Count - Even When You're Gone

A gift in your will (a legacy) is a fantastic (and often tax-efficient!) opportunity for you to continue supporting the work of Hope for Kids International in rescuing orphans and children at risk and helping to transform communities in the poorest countries of the world.

Reducing Tax

As Hope for Kids International is a registered charity, no inheritance tax is payable on the amount of your gift. So in addition to helping more children have a better start in life, your legacy gift could also reduce the inheritance tax liability on your estate. Someone leaving a minimum 10% of their taxable estate to charity can qualify for a reduced rate, down from the current 40% of taxable wealth to 36%. Your legal advisor will be able to provide more details, and you can refer to hmrc.gov.uk/inheritancetax.

Making a statement

In this way, the same stewardship principles you follow in life can apply to the resources you leave behind. Your legacy tells those close to you about your values and the things that are important to you.

Pray about it

Please prayerfully consider your response to this important part of what it means to be a good steward of all that God has blessed us with.

It is reported that, in the UK, around two-thirds of adults do not have a will that decides who receives everything they own when they die. We may not know exactly when we're going to die, but we can make decisions NOW that could make a huge difference in the world once we're gone!
