CAF offers a flexible way to leave one gift in your Will to benefit as many charities as you like.

Leaving multiple charitable legacies in your Will involves a lot of work, which is why we've designed our service to make it easy for you and your executors. Here's how it works:

  • Name CAF in your Will - we give you the exact wording to make this step easy.
  • Identify the charities you'd like to support. If you are unsure of who to give to, our expert advisors can help you select charities, or charitable causes, that are important to you.
  • List the charities or charitable causes in your Letter of Wishes and send it to us.
  • View our fee schedule

CAF flexible choice of charity

It's flexible

Each time your choice of charities changes, just send us a new Letter of Wishes at no cost to you.

CAF no transfer fees

It's practical

By naming us as the only charity, you save time and costs for your executors, meaning more money could be available for your charities.

CAF guaranteed secure payments

It's secure

As a registered charity, we can ensure any tax benefits that your estate attracts will be valid.

CAF confidential communication

It's confidential

We won't share your Letter of Wishes with anyone, unless you want us to, which means your choices will remain private.


If you have received a legacy, you may decide that you would like all, or a part of it, to be donated to charity.

However, you may not want to donate the money all at once, and you might want some time to choose which causes to support - if so, we can help.

A CAF Deed of Variation to a Will is a flexible, tax-effective way to create a charitable giving fund from a legacy that you have received.
