Leaving the Gift of a Legacy in your Will
By remembering the Human Values Foundation in your Will, you can help current and future generations of children and young people build their lives upon a bedrock of life-enriching values – increasing their happiness and wellbeing as well as that of their parents and teachers. You could even transform the lives of whole communities because the uplifting values become an integral part of people’s mindsets, positively affecting the thinking, choices, actions and behaviour of citizens from a young age.
Whatever you can give takes us one step closer to a world in which everyone benefits from individuals, families, businesses, organisations, communities, societies and nations consciously deciding to try and live by values that promote truth, peace, love, right actions and non-violence to the good of all. This is certainly a future worth investing in!
Making a Will
Writing a will is essential if you want your estate to pass to the people you wish to benefit. If you die without one, the law decides how your estate is distributed and the causes or people you really care about may receive nothing. If no relatives are found, your entire estate goes to the government.
Updating a Will
It is suggested that we all review our will annually, otherwise it might be revoked due to changes in circumstances such as the birth of a child, marriage, or the death of a spouse. If changes need to be made, the cost is likely to be less than having a new will written. If you need to make only a few changes, then you can make a legal addition to your will with a document known as a ‘codicil’.
