Gifts in Wills

 

Why we need 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

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.
