Gifts and Legacies
HELP OUR WORK LIVE ON WITH A GIFT IN YOUR WILL
Bruce Freeman, current Chair of The Courtyard Board, says, ‘We recognize that making a will, and thinking about when we are no longer here, is difficult. When I made my will quite recently, I focused on my life and on who, and what, had been most important to me during that time. Of course, my family featured strongly, but my thoughts also turned to The Courtyard, a place I treasure. If, like me, you truly love this place, and want to help secure its future for others to enjoy, like your family, then making a legacy is just one way to do just that. Every donation is precious to us and, I promise you, it will be really appreciated.’
One locally based law firm currently supports The Courtyard through our Business Club and sponsorship, and also offers a will writing service: Gabbs Solicitors offices can be found in Hereford, Leominster and Hay on Wye.
The Courtyard has also joined Remember a Charity, a national organisation which supports charities such as ourselves to increase legacy giving. For more information about writing or updating your will, please visit Making a Will. This helpful guide provides guidance to the steps you need to take.
