Leaving a lasting legacy

Leaving a Lasting Legacy

We know the impact of adoption on people’s lives is life-long.

A bequest may take the form of either a specific cash sum or a residual proportion of an estate. On estates over £325,000, you will also cut the inheritance tax bill substantially by donating to charity.

If you’d like more information on the benefits of leaving money to charity, please email fundraising@diagrama.org and we can let you know what’s involved. Advice on writing a will, including how to make sure it’s legal, is available on the gov.uk website.

We recommend that you use a solicitor to write your will. Words have precise legal meanings and a solicitor will help to ensure that your will reflects your wishes.

Estate executors

If you are an executor of an estate that includes Diagrama Foundation, Diagrama Adoption or Cabrini Children’s Society, please get in touch.

Donating in memory of a loved one

Inviting donations in lieu of flowers can be a wonderful way to remember a loved one. This can be arranged through the funeral director and can also include a retiring collection. Letters of thanks are sent to all donors and/or family members.

An In Memoriam online giving page can also be created on JustGiving and other tribute giving websites, where photographs of loved ones can be uploaded and memories posted. If donors are UK taxpayers (and pay more in tax than they are donating) we will also be eligible to claim a further 25p in Gift Aid for every £1 donated. For more information, please have a look at JustGiving’s guide to raising money in memory of a loved one.

Thank you for thinking about Diagrama Adoption.
