Leave a legacy

Leave a lasting legacy: a gift in your will.

We are so very grateful for every gift we receive. Even a small percentage of your estate can make a huge difference to what we can do. Your generosity will help us ensure that the county that we love remains thriving and beautiful for generations to come.

It is strangely wonderful to think that the time of our passing is the time when we can be the most generous. After we have remembered our loved ones, a gift to the charities we support can provide great comfort and a sense that the things we hold dear will continue.

We are so very grateful to people who leave us a small legacy. They and their families can be certain that will we continue to fight to protect our county for generations to come.

When a loved one dies, many people request that donations to a favourite charity be given instead of flowers at the funeral. Often such donations can amount to hundreds of pounds; money that is valued and appreciated by all charities, including CPRE Oxfordshire. If this is something you can influence when making funeral arrangements for a friend or family member, please consider nominating CPRE Oxforshire as the designated charity. Thank you.

If you haven't got a will, see a solicitor. They will give you peace of mind that your wishes will be carried out and your loved ones will be remembered as you would wish. To choose a solicitor visit The Law Society website.

There are two ways you can leave a legacy to CPRE Oxfordshire:

If you already have a will and would now like to include a gift to CPRE Oxfordshire you can do this by adding a codicil. A codicil does not change the terms of your current will, it simply adds a new instruction. A codicil should be signed and dated by you and witnessed by two people, just like your will. Keep the codicil with your current will in a very safe place and give a copy of the will and codicil to your executor or other trusted friend with a note indicating where the original is held. If in any doubt, consult your solicitor.
