Leaving a legacy

We are very grateful that you have thought of supporting permaculture in this way. The Permaculture Association is a small, effective organisation where your bequest can make a big difference.

Some examples of wording that you can use in your will or discuss with a solicitor:

Leaving a specific sum of money

I give to Permaculture Association, BCM Permaculture Association, London WC1N 3XX, Registered charity number 1116699 (England and Wales) and SC041695 (Scotland), the sum of £xxx , for their general purposes and the receipt of the proper officer of the charity shall be sufficient discharge for my Executors.

Leaving a residuary legacy

I give (xxx per cent) of the residue of my estate both real and personal to Permaculture Association, BCM Permaculture Association, London WC1N 3XX, Registered charity number 1116699 (England and Wales) and SC041695 (Scotland), for their general purposes and the receipt of the proper officer of the charity shall be sufficient discharge for my Executors.

(A residuary legacy is a share of what is left after other gifts, debts, taxes and costs have been paid).

Leaving a legacy for a specific purpose

I give to Permaculture Association, BCM Permaculture Association, London WC1N 3XX, Registered charity number 1116699 (England and Wales) and SC041695 (Scotland), the sum of £xxx and I express the wish that this legacy be used for the benefit of the xxx project and the receipt of the proper officer of the charity shall be sufficient discharge for my Executors.

Leaving a property as a legacy:

I give my property known as xxx or any other property which I may own at the date of my death to Permaculture Association, BCM Permaculture Association, London WC1N 3XX, Registered charity number 1116699 (England and Wales) and SC041695 (Scotland) and I request (without imposing any binding trust or obligation) that if possible it be used to xxx.
