Be Specific in your Will
The most important thing to remember … is that your bequest must be properly detailed in your will – the legal document that every adult should have to protect the assets they have worked hard to accumulate. A Will is not the reserve of the wealthy or something to be postponed until old age.
Your Will allows you to specify how you want your assets distributed after your death, including gifts to your favourite charities. If you don’t have a Will, your assets will be distributed according to a pre-determined legal formula.
Many of us find it difficult to talk about our Will because it represents the time when we will no longer be with our family, friends and loved ones. But by making a Will, you will actually be helping your family and the people you care for. Your wishes will be clear and nothing will be left to chance. If you want your support for the Childrens Charity Network to continue beyond your own lifetime, your Will is the practical device through which this can be achieved.
