What types of gifts can I leave? The right gift to leave depends on individual circumstance. The smallest gift in your Will makes a huge difference to the care Island people will receive. You could pledge as little as one per cent share of your estate, or a cash gift of £500. And if you can give more, you'll be helping even more patients and their families to face death, dying, and bereavement with Mountbatten by their side. There are three types of gift (called a "legacy") you can leave to us: Residuary Legacy – a gift of the remainder of your estate, or a percentage, after all other legacies and any debts cleared. Residuary legacies keep pace with inflation and are an effective way to divide the value of an estate between a number of people and causes. Pecuniary Legacy – Leaving a fixed sum of money in your will. It is worth noting pecuniary gifts can devalue over time due to inflation, so it is worth reviewing your will regularly. Specific Legacy – You can choose to leave property or specific items in your will such as art, jewellery, furniture or stocks and shares.
