Losing someone close to you is one of the hardest experiences that most of us will go through. Often we like to find a way to recognise and celebrate the life of that person in a fitting way and many do this by making a donation in their memory.
Asking family, friends and colleagues to make a charity donation instead of buying flowers is a very special way to celebrate the life of a loved one and every donation will have lasting benefits, helping Linkage Community Trust to make a difference for the future.
How to ask for in memory donations?
If you would like to arrange in memory donations, your Funeral Director can advise you on the wording for your newspaper announcement or the Order of Service.
Leave a gift in your will
We provide the best of education, the best of care and quality support for learning disabled people, empowering them to have a better and more fulfilling future. You could leave a lasting legacy by remembering Linkage in your will. A gift left in your will ensures that you continue to be a part of our work in years to come. We would strongly advise that before making this sort of commitment you contact a solicitor.
Residual gift – a bequest of the remainder of your estate after providing for your family, friends and other expenses have been deducted
Pecuniary gift – this type of bequest is a fixed amount of money, which may be reduced as a result of inflation in the future
Specific gift – a bequest of a specific item, from shares to a piece of jewellery or even a piece of art.
A reversionary gift – a bequest that comes into effect when something else happens. For example, when someone marries or when someone reaches 18 or 21 years old
A donation in memory – you can request that a specific donation be made to Linkage Community Trust in your memory.
