Leaving a gift to Pilgrims Hospices in your Will is simple...
If you're considering leaving a gift in your Will to Pilgrims Hospices, we would like to take this opportunity to give you our most sincere thanks for your generosity.
It is important to get your affairs in order because not having a Will can create many problems for those left behind, at an already difficult time.
This is a percentage of, or perhaps the balance of, your estate once all other payments have been made. It won’t lose its value over time and if you leave a proportion to Pilgrims you can still ensure other beneficiaries are looked after.
This is a gift of a fixed amount of money. The gift’s value may decrease over time, although this can be avoided through an index-linked Pecuniary legacy.
This is a gift of a specific item, such as a personal possession, a property or shares. Through our experienced Retail team we have the expertise to achieve the best price for any gift kindly donated.
It is possible to specify in your Will if you would like your gift to be used for one of the hospices in particular. Please express this as a non-binding wish. We do our best to fulfil your wishes, but if this is not possible, we will spend the funds on the services we provide across east Kent. Please get in touch with our Gifts in Wills team if you would like more information:
Here at Pilgrims, we understand that life can take many different twists and turns, most that aren’t planned for. You can change your mind about leaving a gift to Pilgrims in your Will at any point.
The executor is someone named in a Will as taking legal responsibility for carrying out the instructions left in the Will by the deceased regarding their estate. If there is no Will, or those named are unwilling or unable to fulfill the role, a court may appoint an administrator in their place.
Our promise is to use your gift wisely for the benefit of future generations. We are continuously striving to improve the care we provide so we are able to reach people earlier, and make a difference sooner.
We will never ask you to tell us your intentions.
But, if you choose to, then we are able to say thank you!
