Legacy And In-Memory Giving On The Rise

Kings Court Trust’s latest blog post looks at how legacy and in-memory giving will develop over the next 25 years. A recent report by Legacy Foresight shows the number of gifts left to charities in Wills each year is set to increase.

In 2018, charities in the UK reportedly received £5 billion through in-memory giving and gifts in wills. By 2045, the figure is set to double and reach £10 billion. This is due to various factors including rising death rates, more individuals leaving behind Wills, a higher proportion leaving gifts in Wills, and more people dying without children.

It is predicted that we are likely to see smaller charities making larger gains, with more people looking to make a difference to specialist and local charities during their lives and after.
