Gifts in Wills

When I’m gone, my legacy will provide a happy future for children with disabilities. That makes me feel warm inside.’ Wendy, bibic supporter

Why we need gifts in Wills

Sadly, disability is poorly funded in the UK.  In fact less than 8% of disabled children receive a regular support service of any kind from their local authority*.

With 100% of families saying that bibic provided the help, support and guidance they needed for their child, you can be confident that bibic uses you donations to make the biggest impact**.

bibic receives no funding from the government to provide it’s life changing service and has relied on public donations and gifts in Wills for over 45 years.

 

How to leave a gift in your Will

Whether you have a Will already, or you’re planning to write your first Will, it really isn’t hard to do.  It’s best to visit a solicitor, and this is the wording they need to use:

If you’d like to add bibic to your existing Will, you can do this easily and cheaply with a codicil.  Just speak to your solicitor about this.

 

Is there a simple way I can add bibic to my existing will?

A Codicil is a simple form that allows you to make additions to your current will. Therefore, if you wish to add bibic as a beneficiary in your will, ask your solicitor to complete a Codicil.

 

Honouring your memory

Those who leave us a gift in their will mean a lot to us. We display a Book of Remembrance in our family room. Should you decide to leave us a gift, your name will be entered into the Book as our way of remembering your kindness.

 

If you pledge to leave bibic a gift in your will

Please let us know so that we can thank you. We will make you an honorary member of our Sponsor a UK Child scheme so that you can see the type of impact your gift will have on a child’s life.
A gift in your will, no matter how big or small, will bring happiness to a desperate family.
Just 1% of your estate would change a child’s life.
