How to leave a gift in your will

What do I write in my will?

Our address and charity number

If you'd like to include The Toy Trust in your will, please ask your solicitor or will writing service to use our full name, address and charity number to ensure we receive the gift:

Name: The Toy Trust
Address: c/o British Toy & Hobby Association, 142-144 Long Lane, London, SE1 4BS
Registered charity number: 1001634 (England)

Example wording for your will

Residuary

I give the residue of my estate to The Toy Trust, c/o British Toy & Hobby Association, 142-144 Long Lane, London, SE1 4BS (Registered Charity Number 1001634) for its general charitable purposes. I further direct that the receipt of the Trustees or other proper officers of the said charity for the time being shall be a full and sufficient discharge for the said gift.

Pecuniary / Specific

I give the sum of £_____ (or the item specified) to The Toy Trust, c/o British Toy & Hobby Association, 142-144 Long Lane, London, SE1 4BS (Registered Charity Number 1001634) for its general charitable purposes. I further direct that the receipt of the Trustees or other proper officers of the said charity for the time being shall be a full and sufficient discharge for the said gift.

What types of gifts can I leave?

A share of your estate

After you have provided for your loved ones, you can leave a share of what remains to charity. This is called as a “residuary gift”. Many people prefer to give a residuary gift because it keeps in line with inflation, so does not lose value over time.

A cash gift

This is when you leave a fixed amount of money. This is known as a “pecuniary gift”.

A specific gift

Is a particular item, like personal possessions, land or shares.

Will my gift to the Toy Trust be subject to tax?

Most gifts are exempt from tax. We usually receive the full amount.

Your gift may also bring the total value of your estate below the inheritance tax threshold. Or you may qualify to pay inheritance tax at a reduced rate if you leave a gift to charity. We recommend you talk to a solicitor for more details.

Use this calculator to work out if you qualify.

Should I tell you about my gift?

That’s entirely up to you.  We would love to hear from you if you would like to notify us and this will give us the opportunity to thank you.  It will also allow us to make plans for the Toy Trust’s future.

Please rest assured any information shared with us will remain confidential. And you can of course change your mind at any time.
