Charity legacies

We support your charity at every step of your legacy journey, helping you to honour your supporters’ last wishes.

We know how much legacies mean to our charity clients. And how much leaving gifts means to your supporters.

We provide a holistic service, giving practical and strategic advice. We get to the nub of the issues quickly, and resolve them without costing the earth.  We understand that you’re dealing with financial pressures, and we know you’ll have concerns around reputational issues.

Not only can we help with day-to-day legacy fundraising, administration and disputes, we can make complicated issues manageable.

How we help

When you create your next legacy fundraising campaign, we’ll make sure it complies with the law and best practice. If a legacy is challenged, we’ll be in your corner to resolve it, ensuring your charity’s legacy – and reputation – are protected.

We’ll give you specialist advice where needed including on gifts of intellectual property, property, art work or shares.

Our unrivalled knowledge of charities and charity law means we’re experienced in handling niche matters and complex cases.
