Leave Link a gift in your Will        

Many of you reading this page have been good friends to Link over a number of years, while others have come to this page out of interest in the work we do and to find out about how you might help us.

When you set out your wishes in your Will your family, of course, comes first.  However, if there is something left, no matter how small, which you feel you would like to be used to help others, would you please think about making a gift to Link in your Will?

For children living in sub-Saharan Africa, quality education is the key to a better life, and its advantages can span for generations. Please help us give these children the chance they deserve.

Your gift could help to:

  • Support a girl through primary education
  • Build a community awareness raising campaign to increase support for education, particularly for girls
  • Buy a set a library books for school children in their local language
  • Improve facilities at a school to enable better attendance and quality of education
  • Provide teacher training to help improve the quality of teaching and management at a school
  • Deliver a full round of the School Performance Review, empowering schools and communities with the knowledge and tools they need to make sustainable and accountable changes to improve the quality of education
  • Empower an entire district to make lasting improvements to the quality of education, creating a legacy that will continue for generations.

Link has created awareness about a female being a mother, daughter, nation and a wife; teaching a female is teaching a community and a female can achieve anything if given a chance” – Betheseada Enaso, 14, Ade Dawe School

Information on Inheritance Tax

Your family solicitor will advise you properly as you write or revise your Will.  Your estate (property, money and possessions) may be subject to Inheritance Tax at 40% if it is above the current thresholds, unless you leave it to your spouse or civil partner.  However, leaving a gift in your Will to a charity like Link is not subject to inheritance tax at all and so can substantially reduce any inheritance tax due on your estate if it is above the inheritance tax thresholds.  Furthermore, if you were to leave 10% of your estate or more to Link, the rate of inheritance tax charged on the rest of your estate which passes to friends or family could be reduced to 36% under special new rules for Wills which include a legacy to charity.

See HMRC Inheritance Tax website for more information at: https://www.gov.uk/inheritance-tax/overview
