Leave a gift in your Will
Help others after you’re gone
After you have helped your family and loved ones, please do consider leaving a gift in your Will to Strode Park Foundation to help us continue our important work to offer care and support services to people with disabilities.
There are different types of gifts you can leave in your Will. Here are some of the most common:
If you’d like to include Strode Park Foundation in your Will, please ask your solicitor to use our full name and details to ensure the gift reaches us. These are:
Strode Park Foundation for people with disabilities (A Company Limited by Guarantee). Registered Charity No. 227794.
Registered in England No. 407697.
Registered Office: Strode Park House, Herne, Herne Bay, Kent, CT6 7NE.
Letting us know
Your Will is personal and it’s entirely up to you if you wish to share this information. But if you do choose to tell us, we’d love to be able to thank you properly and let you know how your gift can help. Please contact the Fundraising and Communications department by calling 01227 373292 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If there’s any changes
It’s a really good idea to review your Will every five years in case your circumstances have changed, or if you change your mind about something, which you had previously included in it. Things that might mean you need to review it include if you:
- get married or enter into a civil partnership
- get a divorce
- have children or any other new relatives (like nieces, nephews or grandchildren) who you wish to include
- buy a house or obtain any other valuable assets
Where will my money go?
As gifts in wills are often realised many years in the future, things can change so we politely ask our donors to allow us to be as flexible as possible on how your donation is used. This means that we will use your gift in the absolute best way possible at that moment in time, for example to provide a piece of important equipment or directly into the care for our clients in one or more of our homes.
Of course, if you would like your gift to go somewhere specific please get in touch and we can assist with how to use the right wording to make this possible.
Every year we hope to hold a Will Week with a local solicitors. We will have more details about this soon.
