How to leave a gift to Unlock in your will

Your gift can bring God’s gift of New Life to some of the UK’s poorest urban communities.

Thank you for considering leaving a gift to Unlock in your will. Legacies to registered charities are exempt from inheritance tax.

Leave a gift to Unlock in your Will and help set people in our UK cities free to discover how they are already part of God’s story.

We are the only charity specialising in Bible engagement in deprived urban communities in the UK and a legacy to Unlock can ensure that the Gospel is set free in deprived urban communities.

What your gift could achieve

Unlock’s mission is to:-

  • Unlock real life stories of urban people
  • Reveal Good News of the Down to Earth Christ
  • Release life giving skills and confidence
You will be helping to release the Gospel into these communities; bringing God’s grace, freedom from oppression, new life and hope to people in need.

Legacy gifts of the past have already helped us achieve so much:

How to leave us a gift in your Will

Leaving a legacy gift is an important decision, but it doesn’t have to be complicated. Here are the basics:

  1. State in your Will that you would like to leave a gift to Unlock. We recommend using a solicitor or professional will-writer to make sure your Will is legal and valid.
  2. Include our full name, to make sure the money goes to the right place: Unlock, Registered Charity Number 313454.
  3. If you have already written us into your Will, we’re very grateful and would love it if you could let us know.

What types of gifts can you leave?

It’s possible to make many different types of gifts in a Will, and we will be so grateful for every single one.

Here are a few types of gifts you can leave us in your Will:

  • A share of your estate. After you’ve provided for your family and friends, you can leave a share, or the remainder, of your estate to us. This is called a ‘residuary gift’.
  • Cash gift. This is when you leave an exact sum of money to us. It’s known as a ‘pecuniary gift’.
  • A specific gift. This might be any individual item of property, ranging from jewellery to land or buildings.
  • A gift in trust. You can leave a gift for someone to use over a period of time. When the time has ended, the gift can be passed on to other recipients, such as a charity.

Help us bring forward the day when the Gospel has been Unlocked in the deprived urban communities of the UK.
