Legacies

Since The Winnicott Foundation was established in 1985, so much has been achieved, thanks to the generosity of our supporters. However, we know that there is much more that we need to do.

As a registered charity, The Winnicott Foundation relies now, more than ever on the support of individuals. One of the ways that you can help us continue to provide specialist equipment, training and education programmes alongside supporting parents of premature and sick babies, is by providing us with a gift in your Will. Anyone can include a gift in their Will, however large or small, and all legacies are gratefully received and will be put to good use.

Legacies can also be directed to a specific area of work that best reflects your personal interests.

There are four ways that you can support The Winnicott Foundation through a gift in your Will these are:

A Residual Legacy

This is a donation of the remainder or a percentage of your estate after all debts, taxes, expenses and other bequests have been made.

Pecuniary Legacy

This is simply a fixed sum donation decided by you.

Specific Legacy

You may like to leave The Winnicott Foundation a personal possession or asset including works of art, property and stocks and shares.

Revisionary Legacy

This is a valuable way of providing for your loved ones first. It involves leaving assets to a specified beneficiary to enjoy during their lifetime, with the whole or a portion reverting to The Winnicott Foundation, on their death.

A gift in your Will to The Winnicott Foundation can prove extremely tax-efficient. We have full charitable status; gifts made in this special way are not subject to inheritance tax.
