Leave a Legacy

Help protect places to play sport forever and leave a Legacy to the London Playing Fields Foundation. A gift in your Will, however small or large, will help ensure we will always be here to protect playing fields for future generations.

If you decide to remember us in your Will please speak with your professional legal advisor. Here are some of the things you may wish to consider when making or amending a will.

There are a number of ways you can leave a Legacy.

A pecuniary Gift

This is the gift of a specified sum of money. Bear in mind that because of inflation the value of this gift can be affected over time.

A Residuary Gift

This is where you set aside a portion or all of your remaining estate, known as the residue (what is left over after the payment of debts, funeral expenses, administration costs, and all the specific and other gifts have been paid) to be divided between named beneficiaries.

A Specific Gift

This is where you leave a specific named item to a named beneficiary, such as a car, property, item of jewellery etc. We recommend that you use a specialist legal advisor when making or updating a Will.

If the changes are simple and straightforward this can be done by way of a Codicil – a legally binding document, supplementary to a Will, which is executed with the same formalities as a Will, and adds to, varies or revokes provisions in the Will.

If the changes are major it is likely you will need a new Will. As the addition of a Codicil will affect the contents of your Will we always recommend that you seek professional legal advice.
