Leaving a gift in your will to St Mungo’s can make a huge difference to those who are experiencing homelessness.
It’s an opportunity to leave something wonderful behind, giving somebody the care and support they need, a home, and a chance at rebuilding their life.
Every night, St Mungo’s offers a bed and support to more than 2,800 people in need.
By leaving St Mungo’s a legacy, your amazing gift could transform the lives of people sleeping rough or at risk of homelessness, as well as safeguard our services for the future.
“I first heard of St Mungo's many years ago. I used to give rough sleepers money for food, but I soon realised it was better to donate through St Mungo's directly as the rough sleepers clearly needed more help than food.
I thought it would be sensible to leave St Mungo's some money in my will to help rough sleepers when I have passed away. I am confident St Mungo's will continue to do such a fine and much needed job.”
Stephen, Gift in Wills supporter
Leaving a gift in your will to St Mungo’s
Thank you for considering leaving St Mungo’s a gift in your will. Every gift, no matter how large or small, makes an incredible difference on the lives of people experiencing homelessness. We are extremely grateful for each and every gift.
Choosing the type of legacy you would like to leave is the first step. There are three main ways you can leave a gift.
A share of your estate
Once you’ve taken care of your family and friends, you can leave a share of what’s left of your estate, also known as a ‘residual gift’.
As this is a proportion of your estate, it will keep pace with inflation and not lose value.
A fixed sum of money
This involves leaving a gift of a fixed amount of money. This is also known as a ‘pecuniary gift’. It is worth revising pecuniary gifts every couple of years, as their value could be eroded by inflation.
A specific gift
You may choose to leave a specific item, such as jewellery or
stocks and shares.
It’s best to take professional advice from your solicitor in such instances, to ensure your wishes are properly carried out.
