Legacy Gifts/Bequests

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.

Getting started

You can add a bequest to an existing Will, simply by completing a Codicil and keeping it together with the original Will.

If you have decided that you would like to leave a gift in your Will to Ikamva Labantu, you can follow the below steps:

  1.  Download the relevant Codicil here.
  2.  Complete the Codicil in front of two impartial witnesses
  3.  Have it checked by a lawyer, accountant or financial advisor
  4.  Place the Codicil in a sealed envelope, alongside your Will

If you would like more information about leaving a bequest, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Thank you for considering a gift to the Ikamva Labantu Charitable Trust.
