Gifts in wills

Wills and trusts are a great way to plan for the needs of your family and loved ones. A gift in your will for Autism Together, means you can leave a lasting legacy for people we support for years to come.

Any donation – however big or small – can make a real difference.

There are also financial benefits, reducing the total taxable value of your estate and reducing the rate of inheritance tax you pay.

With this in mind Autism Together has partnered with Bequeathed for a free online will service and McClure Solicitors for a free will preparation service.

Help our work live on…

Making a will is something we often delay, yet it is one of the most important documents we will ever create.  We have created a will planner help you organise all the information you need.

Meet our Partners

We have several partners to guide you through the process of creating a will or trust to suit the best needs of your family.

Bequeathed

You can use Bequeathed to make your will online for free and help Autism Together. Bequeathed will offer you as much support as you need to complete the will interview.

When you’re ready, you can download and print out the will that has been created for you, with full instructions on what to do with it, or you can get further advice on your draft from one of Bequethed’s selected law firms.

Wills are critical for UK charities, with some charities relying on gifts in wills for as much as 60% of their total donations. Without gifts in wills, much of the charitable work in this country might not happen.

There is no obligation to include a gift to Autism Together in your will, but it can make a huge difference if you are able to.

McClure Solicitors

Making a will is one of the most important things that you can do to ensure that your family is taken care of when you are no longer here.

With this in mind, Autism Together has partnered with McClure Solicitors to offer its supporters a free will preparation service. Please do consider making a donation or gift to our charity in your will.

McClures prepare thousands of wills each year. While a standard will only states who is to benefit when you die, McClures ‘Estate Planning Wills’ ensure your estate finishes up where you want it, which is an important difference.

They make your will free of charge – you don’t pay, Autism Together doesn’t pay. You consider a donation for our charity and all of that donation goes to our charity. Everyone benefits.

Ricks Story

My name is Rick Myers, and many of you will know me as a Fundraiser for Autism Together.
Back in 1991, my wife, at the age of 36, lost a short and devastating battle against cancer. I cannot begin to tell you how much I feel about that loss and having two small sons, one only four years old; it was a challenging time.
When something like that happens, there is so much going on; I had to hold down a job, look after my sons, organise all sorts of things that I had never even thought about it.
Like many people neither my wife nor I had even considered making a will, that was something to worry about when you are old and things like dying young never even entered our heads, that was something that happens to other people. Something you read about in the local paper but never happens to you.
I am not suggesting that making a will would have made our lives any happier. Still, it would have been one thing less to worry about as half the time you don’t know whether you are coming or going—knowing that your affairs are in order and that you know that what you are doing would be what deceased person wanted is so important.
Once everything was sorted, I made a will, and I know that when my time comes, everything will be in order.
Making a will just make sense, it does not bring the day any closer, but it does give you peace of mind, and that is priceless.
Obviously, at Autism Together, we hope people consider leaving a legacy to charity, but my message is simple – make a will, it makes sense
