What wording should I use to leave a gift

18 May 2016

Your solicitor or other professional adviser will help you with the wording of your gift, but here is an example of some wording you might use:

For a residuary gift:

I leave my / X share(s) of my residuary estate for Groundwork UK, Lockside, 5 Scotland Street, Birmingham, B1 2RR. Charity number: 291558. absolutely for its general charitable purposes and I declare that the receipt of the treasurer or other proper officer for the time being shall be a sufficiant discharge to my executors.

For a pecuniary gift:

I give free of inheritance tax £X to Groundwork UK, Lockside, 5 Scotland Street, Birmingham, B1 2RR. Charity number: 291558. for its general charitable purposes and I declare that the receipt of the treasurer or other proper officer for the time being shall be a sufficient discharge to my executors.
