Leave a gift in your will
Change lives by leaving a legacy gift to Shawmind in your will
Leaving a legacy gift to Shawmind in your will helps to fund our mission to improve mental health awareness, educate individuals and organisations to understand mental health and emotional wellbeing, and help people to lead successful, fulfilled lives.
We need your support to help keep our services running for years to come.
Why wills are important
A prepared will is not a legal requirement but it is something we recommend you have in place. Ensuring your loved ones are looked after once you’re gone will provide you with peace of mind.
A will is a great way to ensure your impact lives on through future generations. By including a gift, or a ‘legacy’, to Shawmind in your will, you can continue to support us to transform mental health and wellbeing across the UK for years to come.
Write your will for free
We’ve partnered with Prestige, a nationwide Legal Services firm specialising in wills, who are offering our supporters their will-writing services for free if you leave a gift to Shawmind.
Prior to establishing Shawmind, its Founder Adam Shaw built one of the largest and most trusted estate planning organisations in the UK. Adam was personally involved in selecting our partner, ensuring that they have the same values as Shawmind, are credible and well-qualified to ensure our supporters are in good hands.
There is no obligation for you to use the service upon enquiry, but we hope that you consider leaving a gift to us.
How do I leave a gift in my will?
If you wish to leave a gift to Shawmind there are several ways you can do so:
Donate a fixed sum of money to Shawmind in your will. It is a good idea to review pecuniary gifts regularly as their impact may be lessened by inflation.
Example: I give £1,000 to Shawmind for its charitable purposes.
Leave a percentage of your estate to Shawmind. Unlike a pecuniary gift, your donation won’t lose value over time.
Example: I give 10% my estate to Shawmind for its charitable purposes.
Donate specific assets to Shawmind in your will such as personal possessions, property or shares. Describe the item as accurately as possible to avoid any ambiguity.
Example: I leave my blue Vauxhall Corsa, license plate AB12 CDE, to Shawmind for its charitable purposes.
However you choose to support Shawmind you can be assured that your gift will contribute to a future where mental health is destigmatised and improved access to early intervention ensures everyone is able to lead successful, fulfilled lives.
