Leave a bequest

What is a bequest?

A bequest is a gift to a person, family or charity which you make through a Will. Also known as planned giving, it is an opportunity to celebrate the memory of someone important to you by leaving a lasting gift to a worthy cause.

In fact, the first ever donation to The Infants’ Home was £25 from Lady Murray as a memorial to her late husband.

Your bequest can be in the form of money, property, shares, jewellery, works of art, or other valuables. And you don’t have to be wealthy to make a bequest – whatever you choose to give will make a difference.

Why support The Infants’ Home?

Your bequest will directly support our work helping children and families with special needs. Together, we can help people overcome physical, social or financial hardship to build a more positive future.

We have specialist programs at The Infants’ Home that meet the needs of children and families by working with the family as a whole. We provide education, counselling and advice to help people in their role of parenting.

A bequest allows you to leave an enduring gift and ensures your legacy of care and concern lives on through our work for others.

The Infants’ Home relies on the generosity of people who make donations and bequests. We could not continue to work with young children and families without this support.
