With legacies generating £2.23 billion annually and contributing 28% of voluntary income, according to research published by Remember a Charity, the UK’s fundraising charities are heavily reliant on gifts in Wills, a new consultancy group has launched to help charities with gifts in Wills and in memory giving.
Legacy Foresight, Legacy Link and Legacy Voice have joined forces to form the group, called Legacy Futures, which will support charities worldwide throughout the donor journey, with the insight and analysis of Legacy Foresight, the strategic thinking and communications of Legacy Voice, and the diligent administration of Legacy Link.
Legacy Futures will be led by a management team including Ashley Rowthorn, Meg Abdy, Chris Farmelo and Neil Kirk.
Ashley Rowthorn, CEO, Legacy Futures said:
“We have come together because we believe legacy giving is full of huge promise and potential. We want to play our part in supporting charities to realise this potential and believe that working together will allow us to deliver more for the sector we serve.
“Together we will help charities understand their place in the market, implement strategies to grow their giving and provide practical support to maximise the value of their income from gifts in Wills and gifts In Memory.”
