When writing your Will you can choose to name ACTS 435 and leave us a legacy. 100% of what you leave will be applied to online requests to help those in need and you can stipulate whether you would like those requests to be in a particular region of the UK or for a particular category of need such as young people, the elderly, the unemployed, etc. We will apply the funds to requests meeting your wishes as and when they are posted on the website.
There are three ways that you can leave a gift in your Will to ACTS 435:
1. You could leave a share of your residuary estate
2. You could leave a specific cash sum
3. You could leave a specific item
If you decide to remember ACTS 435 in your Will it is important to get the wording right. Make sure you include our full name, our registered charity number and our registered address: ACTS 435, Bishopthorpe Palace, Bishopthorpe, York YO23 2GE (Registered charity number in England and Wales: 1131305; in Scotland SCO42550)
Please ask your solicitor to use one of the following suggested wordings:
Subject to the payment of my debts, funeral and testamentary expenses, I give the whole/ ___% of my estate not otherwise disposed of by this my Will to ACTS 435 (a charity registered in England and Wales (1131305)) of Bishopthorpe Palace, Bishopthorpe, York YO23 2GE for the general purposes of ACTS 435 and I declare that the receipt of its Treasurer or other proper officer shall be a full and sufficient discharge.
