How to make a gift in your Will

Making your Will is an important event in your life and needs careful consideration. After looking after your loved ones you can consider your own values, and the legacy you wish to leave to make this world a better place.

There are a few things to consider when making your Will and we recommend you get in touch with your familiy solicitor, or with our partners at LawOnline ( 


Before you make your Will

1. Work out the value of your estate.
2. Identify the people and causes you would like to include in your Will.
3. Identify executors who will see that your wishes are carried out.
4. Arrange an appointment with a solicitor, or you can also choose to make your Will online, using our free online service.


What kind of gift you can leave in your Will: 

Residual Bequest:
This type of legacy means that you can gift a percentage of your estate to Threshold.

Pecuniary Bequest:
This is a gift of a specific sum of money that will go to Threshold.
