One way of giving is to leave a gift in your Will – also known as a bequest. Leaving a bequest costs you nothing now. Only when you no longer need it is your money put to work to bring support to those most in need – keeping your spirit of compassion and generosity alive for generations to come.
When you leave a bequest to us, your legacy will ensure sustainable investment in Ikamva Labantu’s community development work.
How do I leave a gift in my Will?
There are different ways of structuring a bequest, depending on your circumstances. Whatever form of bequest is right for you, and whatever its value, it will make a difference.
A Gift of Cash
A specific sum of money is the simplest bequest. This does not make allowance for the effects of inflation, nor any future changes in the value of your estate.
A Gift of Residuary Estate
Another popular way of leaving money to charity, is to bequeath the residue of your estate – whatever is left over after family and friends have received their portion.
A Gift of Assets
Specific items may also be bequeathed, e.g. a house or other real estate, motor vehicles, antiques, artwork and items of jewellery.
You can add a bequest to an existing Will, simply by completing a Codicil and keeping it together with the original Will.
