Leave a gift in your will

There are few people who can afford to make substantial cash gifts during their lifetime, but many can make a big difference when leaving a legacy donation.

Leave a legacy in your will in support of Palestinian education and you are leaving a gift of a lifetime that will help Palestinians, many of whom are living on a meagre £1 a day.

A legacy doesn't have to be for a lot of money; for people living in poverty, every donation is important. So please consider Fobzu when you decide who you would like to benefit from your will.

Make a will

Making a Will doesn't have to be costly or complicated. The best way to make a will is through your solicitor or legal adviser. If you do not have a legal adviser, visit The Law Society website to find a solicitor in your area.

Update your will

If you already have a will, the simplest way to make alterations is by making a Codicil. This is an instruction that is kept with your existing Will and which your solicitor can draw up.

Types of legacies

Residuary. This is the remainder of your estate once other legacies, debts, taxes and expenses have been paid. A gift to Fobzu can be all or part of the residue of your estate.

Pecuniary. This is a fixed sum of money.

Reversionary. This is left to the descendent but reverts to the charity of your choice after their death.

Let us know

You do not have to let us know if you have left a legacy in your will to Fobzu, although we greatly appreciate it if you can. This does not place you under any obligation - it simply gives us an indication of future support and helps fobzu to plan for the longer term.

Complete the pledge form and return it to us either by post to the address below or by email to director@fobzu.org. Alternatively, you may simply drop us an email and let us know of your intentions. Any information you do give will be treated in the strictest confidence.
