Leave a Legacy You can help care for future generations We rely heavily on voluntary donations and without the kindness and generosity of our supporters we simply couldn’t continue doing what we do best; caring for local people and their families living with terminal illness. While we appreciate that family and friends will always be at the forefront of your mind when planning for the future, leaving a gift to Birmingham St Mary’s is one of the most valuable and lasting ways you can support individuals and families that needs us. A gift of money: Also known as a pecuniary gift this is a gift of a fixed amount e.g. "I wish to leave £1,000 to Birmingham St Mary’s Hospice." A recent pecuniary gift of £1,000 means 10 families are able to have a specially trained Heath Care Assistant allow carer respite. A specific gift or item: This would refer to a gift specified in your will such as an antique or a piece of jewellery. A share of your estate: Also known as a residual gift this refers to a share of your estate, e.g. ‘I wish to leave 50% of the remainder of my estate to Birmingham St Mary’s Hospice’ A recent gift from an estate in a will, to the value of £160,000, means we are able to provide Hospice at Home end of life care to 80 people. Every year, 1 in 7 patients and their families receive our care and support thanks to gifts in wills.
