Thank you for considering leaving a gift to Stonewall in your Will.
We're the UK's leading LGBT charity and we've been here for 25 years fighting for full legal equality. A legacy gift to us means we can be around for as long as we're needed, striving for acceptance without exception for LGBT people all over the world.
Your gift will have a lasting impact, helping us reach thousands more young people still being bullied schools, work with activists in more countries where it's still illegal to be LGBT, work with hundreds more employers to help LGBT employees reach their full potential and reach LGBT people in even more communities where we're currently trying to reach.
How to leave us a gift in your Will
Leaving a legacy gift is an important decision, but it doesn't have to be a difficult process. Here is some basic information, but please do call Lynn on 020 7593 1876 if you need any more help:
- To leave a legacy, simply state in your Will that you'd like to direct a gift to Stonewall. We recommend that you use a solicitor or professional will-writer to make your Will is legal and valid.
- Please do include our full name and charity number: Stonewall Equality Ltd, Registered Charity Number 1101255.
- You can leave a specific sum of money ('Pecuniary gift') or an item such as jewellery or a piece of art ('Specific gift'). Or you can leave part, or all of, your estate once other bills have been paid and all other gifts have been distributed ('Residuary gift').
