Legacy giving shapes the world around us and this has been more evident in 2020 – during the coronavirus outbreak – than ever before.

In this joint report from Remember A Charity, Legacy Foresight,the Institute of Legacy Management, and Smee & Ford we explore the role of legacies during the pandemic and how we can, going forward ensure our charities are more resilient at coping with change out-with our control. While many fundraising channels and activities ceased, gifts in Wills – the largest source of voluntary income – sustained vital charitable services across the UK. This report presents insights from interviews with leading legacy experts and shares key findings from a survey of over 120 charity representatives.

This is a unique opportunity not only to normalise legacy giving, but to provide a more resilient financial core and to ensure UK charities can continue to provide critical services for future generations. Allan Freeman, Chair of Remember A Charity
