Answers to frequently asked questions about legacies

3. I’d like to ensure that my legacy is used for a particular purpose. How do I do this?

It is best for us if gifts of any kind are made unconditionally. No one can say for certain what specific appeals we will have in the future, when a Will becomes effective. If there are binding conditions attached to a legacy which we cannot satisfy, the Foundation may not be able to benefit from the legacy.

You can request in your Will that your gift be directed to a specific purpose or appeal. However, it is very important to us that, if at all possible, such requests are stated as a preference and not a condition.
