Leave a legacy

Since Orchid was founded in 1996, so much has been achieved, thanks to the generosity of our supporters. However, we know that there is much more that we need to do.

As a registered charity, Orchid relies now, more than ever on the support of individuals. One of the ways that you can help us continue our specialist support services, awareness programme (highlighting the signs and symptoms of male cancer), the provision of materials and our research programme, is by supporting us with a gift in your Will. Anyone can include a gift in their Will, however large or small, all legacies are gratefully received and will be put to good use.

Legacies can also be directed to a specific area of work that best reflects your personal interests.

There are four ways that you can support Orchid through a gift in your Will, these are:

A Residual Legacy

This is a donation of the remainder or a percentage of your estate after all debts, taxes, expenses and other bequests have been made.

Pecuniary Legacy
This is simply a fixed sum donation decided by you.

Specific Legacy
You may like to leave Orchid a personal possession or asset including works of art, property and stocks and shares.

Revisionary Legacy
This is a valuable way of providing for your loved ones first. It involves leaving assets to a specified beneficiary to enjoy during their lifetime, with the whole or a portion reverting to Orchid, on their death.

A gift in your Will to Orchid can prove extremely tax-efficient. We have full charitable status so gifts made in this special way are not subject to inheritance tax.
