Church Homeless Trust
Rebuilding broken lives
Registered Charity Number: 802801
LEAVE A LEGACY
The thoughtfulness and provision of all those who have very generously left us legacies significantly helps us in our ability to fund many schemes for the homeless, including projects for vulnerable young people leaving care; ex Service personnel; alcohol and drug rehabilitation projects; women's refuges and places for other vulnerable homeless people.
There is only limited statutory funding available for hostel furnishings and Life Skills training equipment such as computers and kitchen equipment. Legacies and donations we receive are invaluable in helping us to fund the provision of furnishings for new and refurbished hostels, the employment of Life Skills Trainers, and the purchase of IT equipment, in addition to providing welfare and resettlement grants for homeless people.
If you would like to include Church Housing Trust when you are writing or updating your Will, please contact professional advisers and tell them the sum (or percentage of your estate) that you would like to leave us. Your adviser will need only our charity name, address and registered charity number.
Many people also like to give 'In Memory' donations as a practical and valuable way to celebrate the life of a loved one. Donations made 'In Memory' of a loved one live on long after flowers have faded, and a gift to Church Housing Trust will help us to continue to make a real difference to homeless people in the future.
If you have any queries, or would like to visit one of the projects we support, please call us on 020 7269 1630.
Make a Pledge
Gifts left in wills are really important to Church Homeless Trust. However even if you haven't made a will, making a pledge to do so in the future would really help us to find out about your future intentions.
Pledges are not legally binding so by filling out this form you are not committing yourself! You are simply allowing Church Homeless Trust to confidently estimate future support for their cause.
Leave a Legacy
If you have already made a will but you want to leave a legacy to a charity you can make an addition or change it without re-writing your current will. This addition is called a codicil.
To leave a legacy to Church Homeless Trust please download the codicil form below and take it along to your solicitor.
Please note however that this form is not legally binding on its own and has to be part of your main will. We advise you to seek the advice of a solicitor.
If you have any questions about leaving a legacy to us, please contact Church Homeless Trust directly – they will be happy to discuss this with you.
