Remember a Charity Week

Published 11 September 2023

This September, Smee & Ford are proud to be joining forces with hundreds of charities, professional advisers and partners across the UK to celebrate Remember A Charity Week!

Offering generous tax incentives, this form of charitable giving is on the rise and is helping to fund vital services across the country – both now and for future generations. One in four professionally written Wills now include a charitable donation, raising £3.85 billion for good causes annually. Within the current economic climate, those gifts really have become crucial for thousands of charities and community organisations.

Remember A Charity Week (11-17 September 2023) is an annual celebration of the power and impact of legacy giving. Throughout the week, campaign partners, solicitors, Will-writers, charities and others will be championing the legacy message, encouraging people across the country to help build a brighter future by leaving a gift in their Will.
