Have you considered leaving a gift to Changing Faces in your will?

Legacies can play a huge part in making our advocacy, counselling, support networks and skin camouflage services possible.

Making or changing a will is easier than you think. Once you have made provisions for your family and friends, you may choose to leave a legacy to help support Changing Faces, ensuring our work with people with a visible difference can continue in the future.

There are a number of ways you could include a gift to Changing Faces in your will. Below are the most common types of gifts and suggested wording for including in your will:

A residuary gift

After providing for friends and family, many of our supporters decide to leave the remainder of their estate, or a percentage of the remainder, to Changing Faces. This is a popular way to leave a gift to charity as the gift (or legacy) increases in line with inflation.

This means that you give Changing Faces some or all of what is left after you have provided for your family and friends.

“I give (enter the word ‘all’ or ‘a_______% share of’) the residue of my estate to Changing Faces (registered charity number 1011222) of Changing Faces, The Squire Centre, 33-37 University Street, London WC1E 6JN. I also direct that the receipt of the Treasurer or, duly authorised officer, of Changing Faces shall be a full and sufficient discharge for the said legacy.”

A cash gift

A cash gift is a fixed amount of money. It is important to remember that cash gifts decrease in value over time and therefore may need to be reviewed now and then.

“I give the sum of £__________ (enter the amount to be given) to Changing Faces (registered charity number 1011222) of Changing Faces, The Squire Centre, 33-37 University Street, London WC1E 6JN. I also direct that the receipt of the Treasurer or, duly authorised officer, of Changing Faces for the time being shall be a full and sufficient discharge for the said legacy.”

A gift in kind

A gift in kind is an item you decide to leave to Changing Faces and could be property, shares, a piece of jewellery, furniture and so on.

“I give (enter the details of the item to be given) to Changing Faces (registered charity number 1011222) of Changing Faces, The Squire Centre, 33-37 University Street, London WC1E 6JN. I also direct that the receipt of the Treasurer, or duly authorised officer, of Changing Faces for the time being shall be a full and sufficient discharge for the said legacy.”

In the wording of a trust

You can set out that a sum left in a trust fund (when it ends) is given to Changing Faces. You could also set this out in the deed of any trust you make in your lifetime. Please speak to your solicitor about how this can be done.

If you are able to include Changing Faces in your Will, by whichever means you choose, we can’t thank you enough for your generosity. Please be aware that the above is only guidance, not legal advice. You should always contact a solicitor or legal professional before making or updating your will.

If you do wish to include us, you will need the following details:

Changing Faces, The Squire Centre, 33-37 University Street, London WC1E 6JN
