Leave a legacy

Leave a gift to Omega in your will

You may be in a position to support our important work with unpaid carers, former carers and the bereaved by leaving a gift to Omega in your will; its value will be deducted from your estate (your money, possessions and property) before Inheritance Tax is worked out. Gifts made before your death may also qualify for exemption. If your estate is liable to Inheritance Tax, you could reduce the amount due by choosing to give money to charity.

You can either leave a fixed sum (known as a 'Pecuniary Legacy'), or part or all of your estate once other gifts have been distributed (known as a 'Residuary Legacy'). You can do this through your will, or by a declaration to the executors or personal representatives giving instructions as to how you would like your legacy to be distributed. If you are leaving money to charity, make it clear exactly which charity you want to receive your gift. If you feel able to leave a gift to Omega, you will need to specify the full name of the organisation: Omega, the National Association for End of Life Care and the Charity Registration Number: 1120322.
