Newsleave a legacy in your Will to YANA

To help those who might like to leave a Gift to YANA in a Will, we have put together some straightforward advice of how to go about it.

A welcome legacy

In recent years, more and more UK charities have made the effort to welcome legacies, recognising the need for funding solutions that will secure income for the years ahead.  

According to Smee & Ford, UK’s leading provider of legacy information, more than 10,000 individual charities were named as beneficiary in a Will in 2018 and there were almost 40,000 charitable estates.  Smee & Ford’s 2019 report shows that charities are receiving more than £3bn per year in legacy. 

Small is beautiful

Traditionally, it was the larger charities, such as RNLI, RSPCA and Cancer Research UK, who benefitted most from legacies. However, the evidence shows that people are becoming more mindful of benefitting local charities they respect.  In fact, much of the growth in legacy in recent years relates to small and mid-sized charities.
