Why make a will?
Your family and friends are your priority. Making a will and keeping it updated ensures that your assets go where you would want and that your wishes are fulfilled. It can also help your loved ones at what is a very distressing time.
After making provision for loved ones, would you consider supporting The CPBF in your will? Gifts to UK registered charities, like CPBF, are free of Inheritance Tax. This means that the full amount you intend to leave to your chosen charity is received by the charity, rather than 40% going to the Government. More importantly for your family leaving charitable gifts in your will can reduce the Inheritance Tax payable by your estate.
If you would like more information or advice about including a gift in your Will speak to a local solicitor directly, where a professional will work with you to ensure that everything you need to cover is included in your Will, which can often be overlooked in a homemade Will.
Should you wish to remember The CPBF in your will, Please remember to include our full name. The Care Professionals Benevolent Fund, and our registered charity number 1132286.
Updating your Will using a codicil
If you would like to add a donation to The CPBF to an existing Will, you can use a codicil. Adding a codicil to your Will means there is no need to change the terms of your current Will. It simply adds a new instruction.
However, we still recommend that you get this checked by a solicitor.
Thank you for your support
The Care Professionals Benevolent Fund continue to provide the upmost discretion to all those who have applied for support from the fund. We are sincerely grateful to all grant recipients who have allowed us to share their story, where applicable names have been changed to maintain anonymity.
