Leave a Legacy

Have you considered supporting GEWA by leaving a legacy?

A gift in your Will helping to safeguard the future of GEWA both today and tomorrow can be an effective way to support women, children and young people who have experience Domestic Abuse.

Types of Legacy

Residuary Bequest:
A gift of the remainder of your estate after all other bequests have been made and liabilities cleared.

Pecuniary Bequest:
A gift of a fixed sum of money in your will, the value of which would decrease over time.

Specific Bequest:
A particular named item left as a gift e.g. a piece of jewellery.

Contingent Bequest:
A gift in your will that depends upon the occurrence of an event which may or may not happen is known legally as a contingent bequest. e.g. a bequest to a charity which applies only if other beneficiaries named in the will die before the testator.
