Remember Caring for God’s Acre with a Gift in your Will

Thank you for considering supporting Caring for God’s Acre through a gift in your Will.

Your gift can make a big difference by helping the charity’s core work, which is the foundation for our action to support burial and ground and churchyard conservation across the UK.

It doesn’t matter how much you give – we are grateful for all gifts, large or small.

What type of gift can you leave?

There are three types of gifts in Wills or legacies:

  1. A specific legacy consisting of a specific item of personal property
  2. A pecuniary legacy consisting of a specific sum of money
  3. A residuary bequest, which is the residue of your Estate, or a share of the residue, after debts are settled and legacies to others have been paid.

If you have already made a Will, a gift to Caring for God’s Acre may be added to your Will by way of a codicil.

By leaving a gift to Caring for God’s Acre in your Will you may be able to considerably reduce the amount of tax your estate pays or even remove it altogether. Gifts to charities are wholly exempt from Inheritance Tax.
