We understand how much charities rely on gifts for income and help to protect those bequests, while respecting the donor's wishes.
We work closely with major UK charities – aligning ourselves with each charity’s culture to help them optimise this vital source of income. We assist a number of charities, often working alongside their in-house teams, providing estate administration support and valuable reputational guidance.
We adopt a commercial and pragmatic approach to our work in the charity sector and we understand the unique position in which not-for-profit organisations operate. We are also aware that charities need to ensure that their operations are as streamlined as possible and that their legacies generate the optimum amount of cash for the front-line services for which they were intended.
We know that most charities rely on legacies for a very significant proportion of their income. As a result it is important that they are able to protect their bequests and optimise the income which the deceased intended them to have.
One of the key considerations for charities, when deciding on whether to defend a challenge to a will, is the possible effect that litigation may have on the reputation of the charity. Headlines for the wrong reasons are never helpful and can be catastrophic for charities both large and small. In order to help our clients to protect themselves as much as possible, we partner with experts in the field of reputation management who will advise from the outset, on the best course of action.
