Remember a Charity Week
This week (5th - 12th September 2022) is #RememberACharity week which aims to raise awareness of the importance of gifts in Wills to good causes across the UK.
Leaving a gift in your Will to a Community Foundation enables you to leave a legacy and support local communities and generations for many years to come.
Legacies continue to be one of the most important aspects of UK charity fundraising and because Community Foundations are about endowment building, longevity and making a difference in perpetuity, leaving a legacy to us will ensure your gift makes a lasting difference for future communities across Northamptonshire.
If you have a specific interest or purpose in mind, we encourage you to discuss this with us to help ensure we meet your wishes.
Legacies of all sizes make a difference, no matter how big or small, they help us forward plan our future grant-making and make a lasting difference to local lives and communities.
Alan Maskell explains why he and his wife chose to leave a legacy with us:
"We wanted to ensure that upon our deaths, a contribution form our estates would help local people who are most in need. For that reason we decided to leave a legacy to the Foundation, to contribute to the needs of people living in poverty, social isolation, who suffer from disabilities or those experiencing life's little problems, as a way of thanking the county for what we have personally achieved whilst living here."
