Leaving a gift in your Will is the most special gift of all.

Inspire a younger generation and help them to rebuild their lives following a cancer diagnosis.

By remembering Teens Unite in your Will, you will be leaving a long-lasting legacy and making a difference for years to come.

Why Leave a Gift to Teens Unite?

The rates of cancer in teenagers and young adults is increasing. Since the early 1990’s there has been an increase of more than 28% in the UK. However, the good news is that over the last decade, cancer mortality rates for the same age group have decreased by around a quarter, giving young people with cancer a survival rate of over 84%. 

Your gift will help us continue to provide workshops, residential stays and activities for these young people overcoming their diagnosis.

Did you know? Making a donation to charity through your Will is a very cost-effective way to give, as donations to charities are exempt from Inheritance Tax.  This means every penny comes to Teens Unite to help young people rebuild their lives after cancer.

How Do I Leave a Legacy?

There are three main ways to leave a legacy or gift in your will.  Your Solicitor or Financial Advisor will be able to check everything over for you.

Residual Gift - is the gift of all or a share of, what is left in your estate after all your other gifts to family and friends, plus taxes and expenses have been paid.  Even 1% could make all the difference to a young person with cancer.

Pecuniary Gift - is a gift of a stated amount of money which is left to a named person or organisation.  Inflation will reduce the value of these gifts over the years, so they should be revised from time to time.

Specific Gift - this is the gift of a specific item like a piece of jewellery, furniture or property, rather than a sum of money.

If you already have a Will in place, there’s no need to make a new one. You can just add a codicil, which is a separate instruction kept with your Will. It’s best to get this checked with your solicitor before you complete it.
