An important part of charitable giving comes from legacies (money or assets left in your Will). No matter how big or small your donation is, you can ensure that our support for past and current Royal Navy and Royal Marines personnel and veterans, and their families, is here for years to come.

By leaving a gift in your Will, you can ensure our vital work continues.

Please take advice from your solicitor about adding a legacy giving clause to your existing will. If you don’t have a Will, then now might be the time to get one in place.

Your legacy gift can take many forms, such as:

A 'specific' gift – whereby you name a particular item to leave, such as a piece of land or property
A 'pecuniary' gift – whereby you specify an exact amount of money to donate to the Charity
A 'residuary' gift – the remainder or a proportion of your estate after all other debts and expenses have been settled

How to leave a gift

Your legacy should be left to The Royal Navy and Royal Marine’s Charity, a company limited by guarantee registered in England and Wales (no. 6047294) and registered charity (no. 1117794) and Scotland (SC041898).

Leave a Legacy to The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity

The only way we can ensure our wishes are met when we pass away is by making a Will. By remembering The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity in your Will, you can ensure we are able to continue helping those from the Naval community who require our support. 

Your legacy or bequest will also mean that you can take advantage of the tax privileges that are available to encourage such support. Legacies or bequests can reduce or even eliminate the tax payable on the balance of any estate and are themselves totally exempt from inheritance tax.

How do I make a Will?

A Will can be made by yourself, however we would advise (especially if your wishes are not straight-forward) to consult a solicitor or to use the Will service from the Post Office to ensure your Will is legally valid.
