Thank you for considering leaving a donation to Children’s Heart Surgery Fund in your Will.

As a wholly self-funded charity, it is your legacy donations that allow us to continue ours – supporting hearts for life.

Follow our simple three-step guides below to help you in the process of creating or updating your Will…

Follow our simple three-step guides to create a Will, or amend an existing one.

1 – Consolidate a list of everything you own

Create a list that details everything you own, including your assets and estate. It’s important at this stage to decide who you wish to be your executor. For assistance, take a look at our Will planner found here.

2 – Decide who you would like to include in your Will

Deciding who to include in your Will is a big decision and one which requires much thought. Aside from your nearest and dearest, a donation to the Children’s Heart Surgery Fund, no matter how big or small, is an incredible gift.

3 – Enlist a solicitor to write your will

To create your Will, we suggest contacting a solicitor to ensure all legal procedures and your wishes are correctly carried out efficiently and effectively.

1 – Re-evaluate your circumstances

Have your circumstances changed since you last made your Will? Ensure you review your Will to ensure all information is up-to-date.

2 – Assess who you have included

Leaving your assets to your nearest and dearest is the norm, but have you considered Children’s Heart Surgery Fund in your Will? A donation, no matter the amount, is an incredible gift and will help thousands of children and families who are dealing with the struggles of congenital heart disease.

3 – Choose who will make your amendments

Minor amendments can often be changed with the use of a codicil, which is an addition to your Will that explains, modifies or revokes information which was previously included. For advice on how to amend your Will, please contact a solicitor.

Types of legacy donation

There are a number of ways you may wish to remember Children’s Heart Surgery Fund in your Will. Donations can include a specified sum of money, a percentage share of your estate or a particular item you think would help benefit CHSF.

We are incredibly grateful of any type of support, whether that’s £100 or £10,000, 1% of your estate or 10%, every donation helps make a difference in the lives of our patients.
