Leave a gift in your Will

Ensure your legacy makes a lasting difference to communities.

Legacy gifts are a way to support the causes you love, help your community for generations to come and to be remembered. For over 30 years we’ve been helping people like you through all the sensitivities of deciding how best to make a difference.

A gift in your will

By naming the Community Foundation serving Tyne & Wear and Northumberland as the beneficiary of your gift without any restrictions, you give us the maximum flexibility to support important causes and respond to changing needs in our area’s future. You can also leave a gift of any size to support a particular cause or community alongside other donors through one or more of our collective giving funds. If you leave a gift of £10,000 or more in your Will, you can set up an invested fund within our endowment.


Making or updating your Will does not have to be expensive or complicated. However, we strongly recommend that you seek legal advice about drafting and the correct execution of a Will or codicil. We can provide sample wording for your Will and/or a Letter of Wishes – contact Lisa Cappleman using the form below.
