Donations we receive through legacy giving make a real difference to our work with children and young people. In pledging a gift in your will, you can help children in years to come receive the vital support they require to develop happy and healthy lives.
A gift in your Will is an amazing way to leave your mark on a cause you feel passionate about. Once you have made provision for friends and family, please consider leaving a gift to Active Fusion. Even a small amount, like a 1% share of your estate, can make a big difference to our children.
For more information please see our FAQs below.
Why should I make a Will?
A Will is a way to ensure that your property and possessions are distributed according to your wishes after your death. Without one, the law could dictate how your estate is shared, which might not be as you would have intended.
How can I remember Active Fusion in my Will?
There are two types of gifts you could consider leaving to Active Fusion: a Residuary Gift (all or specific % of your estate) or a Pecuniary or Cash Gift (a fixed donation amount).
To find the right approach for you, we recommend seeking legal advice. You should remember however when writing your Will to detail our full name, address and registered charity number. Please see below.
Active Fusion, The Point, South Parade, Doncaster, DN1 2DR
Registered charity no. 1175220.
You should consider leaving a letter of wishes in your Will detailing why you wish to support the charity.
I already have a Will, can I update it?
Your solicitor can help you create a Codicil to reflect your current wishes. This acts as an addendum listing minor changes or extra gifts to your original Will.
I’m not wealthy. Can I still make a gift to Active Fusion?
A gift of any size can make a vital difference to our work.
How will my gift be used?
Gifts in Wills are invested into our Reserve Funding, to build capacity and provide longer-term sustainability for the charity. These funds are then directed wherever the need is greatest.
Are there tax benefits to making a donation in this way?
In short yes. For further information, please visit: https://www.gov.uk/inheritance-tax
Do I need to let Active Fusion know that it is included in my Will?
Your Will is a private document, but we would love to hear from you so that we may thank you and keep you updated with our work.
