Remember us in your will
By leaving a legacy to the Mark Evison Foundation in your will, you will be helping us to continue our life-changing work with young people. It’s easy to set up and will be a lasting contribution to our charity. It’s also tax efficient, as any gift you leave will be deducted from your estate before any tax liability is calculated. Also, if you leave 10% or more of your estate to a charity, you’ll be taxed at a lower rate (36% rather than 40%) on any part of your estate that qualifies for inheritance tax. Simply state in your will that you would like to leave a gift to us, and state our name, address and registered charity number:
Mark Evison Foundation
PO Box 59519, London SE21 9AL
Registered charity number: 1158382
We recommend using a solicitor or professional will-writer to make sure your Will is legal and valid.
If you have already written us into your Will, we are very grateful for your support, and would love it if you could let us know.
