gift aid

If you can make your donation as Gift Aid it will make your donation go so much further. In 2014, ELF received over £134,000 and of this generous donation, £46,390 was eligible for Gift Aid, meaning ELF could claim a further £13,000 from HMRC. Had more of these donations been marked as Gift Aid we could have claimed an additional £24,500!

remember ELF in your will 

Including a donation to ELF in your Will gives our charity the vital income needed to fund new projects, continue our ongoing services and pay for day to day running costs.

We understand family comes first however even a small percent of your estate left to ELF will make a huge difference to our work supporting those living with long term blood disorders in Devon.

No matter how big or small a gift left to ELF in your Will does make a difference.

There are three main types of legacy gifts you could consider:

pecuniary legacy

This would be the gift of a specific sum to ELF and should be reviewed over time to check for any changes in your circumstance and/or inflation rate changes.

residuary legacy

This is the gift of the whole or part percentage of your estate, after any specific bequests, expenses and debts have been paid.

non-monetary legacy

This legacy would be the gift of an item, perhaps jewellery, stocks, shares or other valuables to ELF. Non-Monetary Legacy items are typically be sold and the money raised is then used at ELF’s discretion towards future care of Haematology patients and their families.

Please note: Legacy choices should always be discussed with your solicitor to determine the best option for you and your Will should be reviewed periodically to ensure it continues to reflect your needs and wishes.
