England Golf Trust
Leaving a gift in your Will to charity is a way of showing you care.
It is very important that you make a Will to reflect your wishes and current circumstances. Without a Will, loved ones can be left in a difficult position so it is best to make your intentions clear.
To prepare a Will for the first time we recommend you consult a legal advisor to ensure it is valid and all legal formalities are followed. Making a Will is the only way to make sure that your wishes will be respected and that your friends and family are taken care of.
If you choose to update your Will to reflect a change in circumstances or wishes, this can be done using a Codicil.
We understand that family and loved ones come first when making your Will. If you then choose to leave a gift to the EG Trust, no matter what the size, we can assure you that each gift will go towards helping a young man or woman experience the pleasure that playing golf can bring.
There are two ways in which you can choose to remember the EG Trust in your Will:
Residuary Legacy: by choosing to leave the residue of your estate, or a percentage of this, to the Charity, you will be donating anything that remains upon your death, after all debts and charges have been paid. This is known as a residuary bequest.
Pecuniary Legacy: alternatively you might consider making a donation of a specific amount in your Will to the Charity, known as a pecuniary bequest. This will be paid before the distribution of the residue of your estate.
