CAF CHARITABLE LEGACY SERVICE

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 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.

WHY CHOOSE THE CAF CHARITABLE LEGACY SERVICE?

Flexible

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

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.

Secure

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

Confidential

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

YOUR LEGACY CAN GO WORLDWIDE

Many charities across the globe rely on legacies as a significant source of income, so their impact is profound. For donors who wish to leave gifts to charities around the world, the CAF Charitable Legacy Service offers a solution.

Pamela and Robert Mace were two donors who chose CAF as their trusted partner to look after their legacy. Since they passed away, the Mace Legacy, managed by CAF, has provided an inspirational lifeline to three international charities; Book Aid International, KARI and iDE (picture shown opposite).
