Remember A Charity

Legacies (or gifts in wills) form the foundation of charities in the UK. Many charities depend on legacies, without them, they would not exist. Remember A Charity was formed in 2000 and now has over 140 members who work together to encourage more people to consider leaving a gift to charities in their will, after they've looked after their family and friends.

Legacy income is worth £1. 9 billion to charities each year, but this total only comes from 7% of the population. If the rate of legacy giving rose to just 11% of the population this would create an additional £1 billion for charities.

Remember A Charity is part of the Institute of Fundraising but operates separately.
