It doesn’t matter how young or old you are, you should think about making a will. This is the only way to ensure that your loved ones and any charities you care about are supported in the way you wish. Leaving a legacy to charity has become very popular and leaving a gift of money to VSA can be a tax efficient way of giving. You don’t have to be rich, famous or a wealthy tycoon to leave a legacy. No matter how big or small your donation, you can make a huge difference to the work we do for people in the North East of Scotland. Making a will is a simple gesture that can last a lifetime and it’s a lot more affordable and straightforward than you may think.
If this is something you would be interested in, please visit The Law Society of Scotland website (www.lawscot.org.uk) to find a solicitor and begin the process of creating your will today. Your solicitor can give you proper guidance if you would like to leave a gift to a charity in your will.
Once you’ve taken care of your family and friends, consider the vital difference that a gift from your will could make to the people that VSA supports. Leaving a legacy to VSA can help us provide an excellent quality of life for people who benefit from VSA services and projects, ensuring a brighter future.
Remember, if you’re going to leave a legacy to VSA, please include the following essential information in your will:
Charity name – Aberdeen Association of Social Service
Operating name – VSA
Charity registration number – SC 012950
Company registration number – SC018487
Registered office and principal office – 38 Castle Street, Aberdeen, AB11 5YU
Please consider leaving a legacy, whether large or small, to VSA or any of our services.
It is good to think that even when you are gone you are still helping support the great work charities undertake in helping local people in the city that we love.
A legacy is lasting, leaving something for you to be remembered by. In addition you can save on inheritance tax by leaving to charity. You can help charities to continue their excellent work by leaving them a gift in your will, which can make a major difference to the lives of thousands of people in our city.
