Leave a legacy to Zest4Kidz and you are able to change lives even after you’re no longer here. Your will can be an act of love to those you leave behind.
In October 2009 we first met Maggie sitting outside a school in southern Uganda. As we walked closer to her we discovered she had a horrific skin disease that kept her isolated from not only her village and community but also her education. On good days a teacher would venture out from the school to pass along her lesson for the day. Often, Maggie would just sit under the tree and nobody would come. Zest4Kidz provided the funds and transportation for Maggie to receive the medication she needed. Today she is fully healed, surrounded by friends, happy and living a full life.
There are many more “Maggies” out there. You can help us help them. Leave a Legacy.
How to leave a Legacy
Approximately 76 per cent of 25 to 44-year-olds haven’t made a will. If you die without a valid will, it can be an enormous stress to your family and lawyers will spend a lot of time – and your money – sorting out your affairs. It’s a recipe for heartache, disputes and discord – and probably isn’t how you’d like them to remember you. We recommend that you contact your solicitor who can advise you on the exact wording.
There are 3 different ways you could leave a Legacy to Zest4Kidz:
1. Make a pecuniary bequest
You state in your will that a specific sum of money will go to a particular charity, or charities of your choice.
2. Make a residuary bequest
You make provisions for your nearest and dearest first, then leave the remainder, or part of the remainder of your estate to one or more preferred charities.
3. Make a specific bequest
You can make a gift of a particular item that you own. In view of the complexity surrounding this sort of bequest, we’d be delighted to discuss it with you before your will is drawn up.
If you plan to leave a legacy it really helps if you let us know. This enables us to plan wisely for the future. It will of course be treated in confidence and is not legally binding.
