For the first time, Rainbow Trust has joined forces with 200 other charities to celebrate how gifts in wills can changes lives.
Taking place on 10-16 September, Remember a Charity Week aims to raise awareness of the importance of leaving a gift in your will to charity. Now in it’s ninth year, the week brings together charities to highlight the importance of legacy giving.
The campaign showcases the impact of legacy donations and calls on supporters to consider passing on something wonderful in their will. You can read more about gifts in wills and how they help seriously ill children and their families here.
“We’re thrilled to be working with Remember a Charity, who are the most well-respected campaigners for legacy giving. It’s a wonderful opportunity to raise awareness of supporting charities in your will, which provides vital funds for good causes. Some charities rely on gifts in wills to fund half their work, but with only 7% of adults remembering a charity in their will, there’s still so much we can achieve by talking about it with our supporters.” Jenny Anne Dexter, Individual Giving and Legacy Manager
