Types of gifts

The two simplest gifts to leave in your will are:

  • A percentage of your estate

This can be 1% to 100% depending on your personal circumstances.

The advantage of this type of gift is that everyone you would like to benefit from your will gets something!

Even 1% to Dorothy House can make a difference and this ensures those closest to you can receive 99%.

  • A cash sum

This can be as small or as large as you wish.

Other types of gifts

There are other types of gifts you can make but it is wise to take professional advice to ensure every gift meets your wishes. If you do not have a solicitor who can help you please contact us and we can supply a list of local solicitors who regularly draft wills. 

It is highly likely that a gift to Dorothy House will attract inheritance tax savings – but again, take professional advice. You might save £400 inheritance tax for every £1000 you leave us. 

How do I notify my solicitor of my wishes?

If you choose to leave a gift in your will to Dorothy House Hospice Care, the only information you need to give to your solicitor is our registered charity number: 275745.
