Leave a gift in your will

 

Leaving a gift in your will to St Mungo’s is a touching way to support homeless people rebuild their lives.

By leaving a legacy to St Mungo's, you'll be helping people experiencing homelessness get vital support to improve their health, learn new skills and take steps along the journey to recovery.

How to leave a gift

A gift to St Mungo's can be as small or large as you like. Leaving 1% of your estate can make a big difference. When leaving a gift you will need to make a note of our name, address and registered charity number:

St Mungo Community Housing Association

3 Thomas More Square
Tower Hill
London
E1W 1YW

Registered Charity Number: 1149085.

The simplest way to leave us a gift is to write a new will. Once a new will is written, it makes any wills made by the same person in the past void.

You can visit the Remember A Charity website to find a solicitor in your local area. Your solicitor will be able to advise you on leaving gifts to charities when making a will.

It is simple to add a change to an existing will by using a codicil form Codicil Form (PDF), which you can use for simple changes.

For more complex changes we would recommend you consult with your solicitor.

Gifts to charities in your will are tax free.

If the value of your estate is more than the inheritance tax, threshold gifting a charity could reduce your inheritance tax.

The Legacy 10 campaign allows anyone leaving 10% of their taxable estate to charity to qualify for a reduced rate of inheritance tax.

We understand that your will is personal to you. If you've decided to remember St Mungo's in your will, we would love to hear from you, so we can thank you and keep you updated on our work.
