Leave a Legacy

Leave a legacy by either including F.R.O.S.T. as a beneficiary in a new will or by adding a codicil to an existing will.

There are four ways by which you can leave a legacy to F.R.O.S.T.:
  • A stated sum of money (a pecuniary bequest)
  • An 'inflation-proofed' sum of money
  • The entire residue of your estate - everything that is left over after payment of all debts and other bequests
  • A share of the residue of your estate

You will need to discuss with your professional adviser how best to include the following suggested wording in your will. For the first three ways you will need to include the statement:

"I bequeath to The Friends OF St Thomas of Canterbury, East Clandon, Surrey, Registered Charity Number 1096354"

If you wish to make a straightforward bequest of a stated sum of money you would then say:

"the sum of £..............(in words.......................)."

For an 'inflation-proofed' bequest you would say:

"the sum of money produced by dividing the sum of £................ by the index figure in the Index of Retail Prices ("the Index") for the month in which this Will is executed and (having made allowance for any re-basing of the Index which may have happened in the meantime) multiplying it by the Index figure in the Index for the month in which my death occurs"

For a bequest of the entire residue of your estate you would say:

"the residue of my estate."

For a bequest of a share of the reside of your estate you would say:"

My Executors shall divide the residue of my estate into equal shares and shall hold such shares as follows:

(a) as to (specify number) such shares for The Friends Of St Thomas Of Canterbury, East Clandon, Surrey, Registered Charity Number 1096354.

(b) as to (specify number) such shares for (legatee) of (address) absolutely.

Note that there are tax implications of dividing the residue of an estate between charitable and non-charitable beneficiaries and your professional adviser will be able to assist you with this. You should also include in your will a receipt clause and your professional advisor will be able to advise you as to its form.
