About

Legacy Liverpool is a group of 19 charities and voluntary organisations across Merseyside who have come together to promote charitable gifts in Wills in the local area. 

The charities that make up Legacy Liverpool all have one common purpose - they all have a local project or work within the region to benefit people in Merseyside.

We hope that this campaign will show the importance of leaving a charitable gift within your Will and the difference that this can make to your favourite charities. We all know you can't take it with you, but after you've provided for your loved ones, gifts in Wills help charities plan for their future to help generations to come, and a legacy gift is such a special way to support the charities you love.

"Legacy giving is such an important part of charitable funding and an individual legacy can make a phenomenal difference to local charities. Legacy Liverpool is a great idea bringing together some fantastic charities to promote the importance of legacies. I'm sure the people of Merseyside and Cheshire will respond by showing their famous generosity in supporting legacy giving."

By Roger Phillips, BBC Radio Merseyside

Will writing statistics in Liverpool are low and charitable legacy giving is not common practice. We want to encourage more people to visit their solicitor and write their Will and to encourage remembering a local cause.

We are not here to solicit gifts or ask for Legacy Liverpool to be included within an individual’s Will, rather encourage people to think about leaving a lasting gift to a local charity, voluntary organisation or issue that you want to give your help to in the future.
