Make a legacy to us in your Will!
Make a legacy to Peter Bedford Housing Association and help us on our mission to tackle social exclusion and homelessness.
Leaving a gift in your Will is a promise to be there for our tenants and participants in the future.
Why give a legacy gift?
At Peter Bedford Housing Association (PBHA), our housing, adult learning, employability courses, and social enterprises offer people the chance to build on their strengths and reach their potential. We strive to inspire people, some with complex needs and disabilities to find their futures, improve their well-being and achieve greater independence.
Your donation will help us on our mission to tackle homelessness and make sure that everyone has something positive to contribute towards society.
A look at our impact
What is a legacy?
A legacy is a gift made after your death and the giving is organised by the executors of your will.
So, you have to have a will to make a legacy.
A legacy can either be a proportion of how much you leave in your will or a fixed amount.
If you leave a fixed amount do bear in mind that your gift will get smaller and smaller each year because of the effect of cost of living rises so you can should say in your will that the amount of the gift will be uprated each year in line with cost of living rises.
How to give a legacy?
In order to give a legacy, you need to make a will.
If you already have a will and want to amend it to make a legacy to Peter Bedford we suggest you insert the following text into your will:
I leave my / X% share of my residuary estate to Peter Bedford Housing Association Limited, housing association with charitable aims registered under the Cooperative and Community Benefit Society (no 20037R) and a registered provider with the Regulator of Social Housing (No. LH0888), absolutely for its general charitable purposes and I declare that the receipt of the treasurer or other proper officer for the time being shall be a sufficient discharge to my executors.
Your new Will will need signing and witnessing again once you have done this.
