Leave a gift in your will

Leave a gift in your will

A Will is a legal document used to dispose of one's assets. Wills must be in written form, signed, dated and witnessed. Will-makers are strongly advised to take legal advice when writing their will.
There are four main types of legacy:
  • specific - personal or household effects
  • pecuniary - cash gifts
  • residuary - share or balance of remaining funds after deduction of debts, costs, tax and previous pecuniary or specific legacies
  • reversionary or life interest - applies where property, e.g. a house, is left to an individual for life and reverts to a charity upon that person's death.
Whichever way you choose to make or update your Will it's absolutely vital to include our full name. Please specify that you are leaving your gift to Trellis, Registered in Scotland as the Therapeutic Gardening Network, Company no. 299227 – Scottish Charity no. SC037429
If you simply leave it to "Trellis" your gift may not reach us.

Financial benefits of leaving a gift in your Will
Legacies are generally exempt from inheritance tax, so a gift in your Will to Trellis could be tax free for us and in some circumstances could reduce the amount of inheritance tax your loved ones are liable for. If you would like more information, please visit the HMRC website.

 Donate to Trellis and support over 200 therapeutic gardening projects across Scotland.
