remember a charitySolicitors are being urged to raise awareness of legacy giving and help ensure that their clients are informed of all the options available to them.

With the latest estimate indicating that charitable donations are worth almost £2.5 billion to UK charities, the legal profession is playing an increasingly important role in boosting vital funding to good causes.

These gifts are the lifeblood of many of the nation’s favourite charities, helping to fund cancer research, new hospital equipment, life-saving vaccines, guide dogs and much more.

Yet, as it stands, there is a disconnect between people’s appetites for legacy giving and behaviour. Our research shows that while over a third (35 per cent) say they’d be happy to leave a gift in their will, only 6.3 per cent of people actually do.

To address this challenge, more than 1,000 legal firms are now part of a growing movement that aims to ensure that their clients have the option of taking care of their favourite charities, once they have provided for their family and friends.
