Getting Started with Legacy Fundraising

A legacy gift will often be the largest single donation a supporter will ever make. Legacies provide around £1.9 billion income for charities every year and the legacy market is experiencing strong growth. All charities no matter how large or small should consider how they can build a legacy income stream into their charity’s funding mix. Understanding why people make such gifts, and how to handle what is often a simultaneously sensitive and daunting topic, will help you tap into this source of funds and boost your charity’s income.
