The CAF Charitable Legacy Service offers a flexible way for your clients to leave one gift in their Will to benefit as many charities as they like.

We are CAF and we exist to make giving go further, so together we can transform more lives and communities around the world. For over 90 years, we’ve been helping donors, companies, charities and social organisations make a bigger impact.

  • Your clients can give to as many charities as they wish.
  • Your clients can change their minds as often as they like without having to amend their Will.

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

The legacy offering at CAF is great because it saves people the hassle of having to make a decision right then and there. Even if someone wants to give to a specific charity, I would still recommend CAF because of all the benefits.

CAF Deed of Variation to a Will


If your clients have received a legacy, they may decide that they would like all or a part of it to be donated to charity. However, they may not want to donate the money all at once and they may 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 for your clients to create a charitable giving fund from a legacy that they have received.

Create a flexible gift for your clients in 3 simple steps 

I have used CAF for many years as they make giving to charity easy and flexible. In a few simple steps, you can change the charities in a CAF Letter of Wishes without having to change the Will. The expert Legacy team can help with any aspect of your client's gift. They make it simple to set up and will work with the executors to carry out your client’s wishes.
