Leave a Legacy
A charitable bequest (also known as a Gift, or Legacy) is a distribution from your estate to a charitable organisation through your last will and testament. Most charitable gifts made during your lifetime are tax-free.
A gift to your Air Ambulance is taken out of your estate before inheritance tax is assessed. By making a bequest you could reduce or avoid tax and know that you are helping to save lives after your death with the money bequeathed. Depending on the current tax laws, leaving a gift to your Air Ambulance in your Will may reduce the estate tax burden on your heirs.
It doesn’t matter how large or small your gift is. Every gift is valuable and will help your Air Ambulance saves lives.
Residuary Bequest – You can leave the residue of your estate to the Essex & Herts Air Ambulance Trust, whereby all that is remaining in the estate after other bequests, debts and charges are cleared is passed on to the Charity.
Pecuniary Request – You can specify an amount of money to be paid once your estate is settled.
A gift to Essex & Herts Air Ambulance Trust allows us to continue our life saving work.

We strongly recommend that you consult a solicitor or financial advisor when making or amending a Will. Although you will have to pay, you will receive sound professional advice, and they will help you with the correct wording for your legacy.
