Useful links for including a Gift in Will

Your Will is an important legal document and needs to accurately reflect your final wishes.

We believe that your Will should be prepared by a professional – either a qualified solicitor or a Trustee Company. The Stroke Foundation strongly recommends that you seek qualified legal advice when making, changing or updating your Will.

If you’re planning to include gifts to your favourite charities in your Will, please consult a solicitor, legal advisor or Trustee Company and provide them with the wording that we suggest. 

Consulting a legal professional about your Will shouldn’t cost as much as you might think. If you’re updating your Will anyway, including a gift to your favourite charity at the same time as making other changes costs you nothing at all.

You can find a solicitor through your local Law Society in whichever State you live. Their Specialist Accreditation Scheme can help you to find a solicitor who has demonstrated proficiency in drafting and writing Wills and Estate Planning.

Please feel free to contact us to ask us any questions or to talk about how to include a gift in your Will.
