It’s a common misconception that only wealthy people leave money in their will to charity when they pass away. The reality is that most charitable bequests are made by ordinary people who want to make a positive difference after they’re gone, after first taking care of their loved ones.
So whoever you are, whatever your situation, isn’t it good to know that you can help sick and injured children at the Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital by including the Children’s Hospital Trust in your Will.
Bequests to charitable institutions are also exempt from tax and may lead to savings in the amount of estate duty payable, if your estate amounts to more than R1 million. We recommend you consult an attorney to have your Will drafted or updated.
