There are many campaigns with creative names of charities motivating to leave a will to them. Like the little apple tree campaign in Switzerland inspired by a quote from Martin Luther. Or the forget-me-not campaign in Austria using the little flower. Nice. “Giving with warm hands” sounds rather bizarre, but has a good message: decide for yourself what happens to your money.
But the very best piece of information about leaving a will came from Richard Redcliffe, the most renowned expert on legacy giving we know. He explained that in the United Kingdom wills are public after the person died. For that reason, unlike anywhere else, there are statistics about them. And one analysis stated that people that included a charity in their will lived on average three years longer. What better reason could anyone have to leave a will to a charity?
Well, we cannot guarantee any length of life. But we do promise to be an experienced and reliable partner in fulfilling the instructions you give us in your will.
