It’s straightforward and confidential to make a will
Leaving a gift to Newcastle Hospitals Charity in your will is the greatest honour we can receive. The process is straightforward and our charitable status (Charity Number 1057213) could reduce the overall amount of inheritance tax you are liable to pay.
Newcastle Hospitals Charity have teamed up with Farewill to offer you the opportunity to write your will for free online.Get started
Choosing the type of gift you want to leave
There are three common types of gift you can leave to your loved ones and the causes you care about. Whichever you choose and whatever its size, your gift will help to provide the best possible healthcare for future generations.
- A cash gift (also known as a pecuniary gift): This is a gift of a specific sum of money.
- A percentage of your estate (also known as a residuary legacy): This is a gift of a percentage of all of your estate after the payment of tax, expenses and the distribution of any other bequests.
- An item: This is a gift of any specific non-monetary items such as works of art or other valuables.
Type of gift
You may wish your gift to be used where the need is greatest, in which case, please consider leaving an ‘unrestricted gift’ which gives the most flexibility for it to be used where it is most needed and makes the biggest difference to the healthcare we provide. Alternatively, please stipulate which particular area of the hospital, or our activities you wish to support.
We recommend that you speak to your legal advisor for advice on making or updating your will. If needed, the Law Society can help you find a solicitor in your area and you can contact them on 020 7320 5650 or visit their website.
