Leaving a Legacy
A legacy is for the future - and for generations to come
Legacies of all sizes play an important role in our work. They help to secure the future of the hospice and indeed provide a third of all of our voluntary income.
They are a great way to give and tax efficient.
Maybe you would like to support the hospice but because of current circumstances are unable to right now? A gift in your will could be the answer.
Why make a Will?
Many people are shocked by what could happen to their money and possessions if they die without a will, or without updating it to reflect their wishes. The decision to make a will is one of the most important decisions you will make as it lets you choose who will inherit your assets.
How do I leave something to Compton Hospice?
Leaving a gift in your will to the hospice could not be simpler. If you have already made a will, your solicitor can simply add a codicil (a further note on it) specifying your wishes.
If you choose to leave a bequest, please state Compton Hospice, Wolverhampton. Charity Registered No. 512387

Make a Pledge
Gifts left in wills are really important to Compton Care. 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 Compton Care 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 Compton Hospice 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 Compton Hospice directly – they will be happy to discuss this with you.
